How to enter

There are two ways to join Team Macmillan for the Great North Run 2019:

Macmillan Charity Place Entry

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.

To enter, simply click the 'Get a place’ button and complete our online entry form.

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.

Own place entry

The Great North Run public ballot will open in early January and you can sign up to their reminder service at greatrun.org/great-north-run to be the first to know when you can register.

If you're lucky enough to secure a place in the ballot click the 'I have my own place' button to join the team and order your running kit.

What do I get as part of #TeamMacmillan?

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

  • Our bumper fundraising pack, with and loads of fundraising tips and ideas.
  • Access to our online training zone .
  • Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
  • Regular e-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 everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can.

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