Wakefield Hospice are delighted to have a number of guaranteed places for the Great North Run 2017. This iconic event is the largest half marathon in the world with over one million people taking part since it started. Starting in the heart of Newcastle the 13.1 mile route takes you over the Tyne Bridge and out to the coast of South Shields, with stunning sea views carrying you through the last mile to the finish. This fantastic event is a must for all runners and the atmosphere created by the North East crowds is something not to be missed.
The Great North Run is a great fundraiser for Wakefield Hospice and in 2016 we raised more than £7,500 for patient care here in Wakefield and we would love to raise even more from the 2017 event.
We have a simple online form (click book your place above) and places are allocated on a first come first served basis. To confirm your place you need to the £55 entry fee and set yourself a minimum fundraising target of £350. All of your fundraising will go directly to patient care here at Wakefield Hospice.
