Macmillan Charity Place

Team Macmillan is now full for the Great North Run 2017. We would love to have you on the team in 2018, simply email running@macmillan.org.uk to register your interest.

Your Own Place

The ballot results for the Great North Run 2017 have now been released. If you were luck enough to get a spot we'd love to have you on our team - simply click the green ‘Join Team Macmillan’ button. There’s no minimum sponsorship, just raise as much as you can!

Why be part of the green team?

Whichever way you choose to join Team Macmillan, we’ll support you every step of the way with:

- Our brand new fundraising pack, access to our online training zone and loads of fundraising tips and tricks.

- Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.

- Newsletters to keep you up to date with Macmillan's news and activities.

And of course... the loudest and most supportive cheerers on the course!

Most importantly we will provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts will help ensure that no one faces cancer alone.

Please make sure you have read our Terms and Conditions before signing up. You must be 18 or over on the day of the event in order to run.
