The AJ Bell Great North Run, the world’s biggest half marathon, is back on Sunday 10 September 2023. Make sure you sign up to the North East’s landmark event and experience that epic South Shields finish line celebration with team Ripon Community Link. 

Famous for its inclusive atmosphere, unbeatable on-route entertainment and warm Geordie welcome, not to mention the millions raised each year for worthy causes, Great North Run magic can be hard to understand – until you’ve experienced it for yourself on the Newcastle to South Shields route.

Beyond bragging rights, beyond 13.1 miles of roaring support, beyond the feeling of being a part of something really special, there are a whole lot of tangible rewards waiting for you at the finish line – the much coveted finisher’s t-shirt and medal are well worth the sweat and tears along the way!

The Great North Run is a run for everyone, of all ages and abilities, whether it’s your first event or your 50th. It's an inclusive festival of running, with music blazing, crowds buzzing, legs pumping and fists bumping. There’s nothing quite like it!
It doesn’t matter whether you beat your personal best, you’re guaranteed a run like no other, a finish line feeling you’ll never forget and it all tastes even sweeter if you’ve helped raise money for a worthy cause along the way.

Join team Ripon Community Link today and take your place on that iconic start line in September.*
