Great North Run places

Have your say

Runners and joggers from South Yorkshire are being sought to take part in this year’s Bupa Great North Run.

The Red Cross is seeking participants who will raise money for the charity by completing the world’s biggest half marathon on Sunday, September 18.

Red Cross community fundraiser Max Newton said: “Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, so you will need to act fast.”

Those who sign up to run for the Red Cross will receive a running vest, useful training tips and guides and valuable support from the fundraising team.

To secure a place, call Max on 0114 2427379, email, text GNR and your name to 07710 711253, or visit to enter online.
