How do I get a place?

There are two ways to get yourself signed up for the Great North Run 2018:

Macmillan Charity Place

Our charity places are a great way to make a difference to people affected by cancer with every step. We ask that you pledge to raise a minimum of £395 in sponsorship (excluding Gift Aid) and there’s a £49 registration fee. (The registration fee is payable to Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited which is wholly owned subsidiary of Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited donates 100% of its profits to Macmillan Cancer Support each year).

Your Own Place

If you are lucky enough to get a spot in the Great North Run ballot then 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 fabulous 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.
