Great South Run 2017

Join us

Be part of the green team and every step you take will make a difference to people affected by cancer. We look forward to cheering you on in Portsmouth.

How do I get a place?

There are two ways to get yourself signed up for the Great South Run 2017:

Macmillan Charity Place

Free to enter! We ask you pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £250 for your guaranteed place, and there’s no registration fee.

To apply, simply click the green ‘Get a guaranteed place’ button and complete our online application form.

Your Own Place

Public entry for the Great South Run is now open at the official race website. If you are successful in securing a place then we would love to have you running for Team Macmillan. Click the ‘I have my own place’ button to join the team. There’s no minimum sponsorship, just raise as much as you can!

Why be part of the green team?

As part of Team Macmillan, we’ll make sure you have:

- 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 Great South Run 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 are going towards improving the lives of people living with cancer in the UK today.

Please make sure you have read our Terms and Conditions before signing up. You must be 16 or over on the day of the event in order to run.

For more information or to speak to a member of the team, please emailing us at or call 0300 1000 200.

'I feel a great sense of unity with everyone involved.'
