Run with us




The Great North Run is a celebration of what makes the North East great! If you join #TeamLegend, you'll have an army of awesome volunteers cheering you on along the course and tonnes of training support and fundraising tips in the lead up to the event.

If you got your own place in the ballot, come and join us on a 13.1 mile journey from Newcastle's city centre to the coast in South Shields - we can't wait to welcome you on board.

How you can help young people

  • £50 could provide 2 hours with Teenage Cancer Trust Youth Support Coordinator who understands what it's like for a young person facing cancer and can support them with the emotional, practical and social impacts of cancer
  • £100 could buy a round of pizzas for everyone on a Teenage Cancer Trust unit so everyone can grab a slice, feel less isolated and be there for each other
  • £210 could pay for 7 hours of care from a Teenage Cancer Trust Clinical Nurse Specialist who understands the challenges of dealing with cancer as a young person and can provide thoughtful, sensitive, expert support
  • £420 could pay for a young person to attend our Ultimate Backstage Experience at the Royal Albert Hall, where they'll develop new skills and confidence before enjoying a Teenage Cancer Gigs show
  • £950 could pay for a young person to attend Find Your Sense of Tumour, an incredible, inspirational residential weekend where they can meet other young people who understand what they're going through, get advice, and take part in amazing workshops
