The Simplyhealth Great Run Series

The Simplyhealth Great Run partnership presents the largest, most compelling and innovative series of mass participation running events in the world. 

Since the first ever Great North Run was first staged in 1981, this annual UK half marathon has grown to become the biggest in the world. More than one million competitors have taken part, including Great Britain’s greatest ever distance runner, four-time Olympic, World and European champion Sir Mo Farah, who has won the Great North Run a record three times in a row. 

We would love you to share in our partnership, and enjoy all that comes from setting yourself a goal to better your everyday health, whether that’s walking, jogging, running or wheeling. There’s no feeling greater than crossing that finishing line; the sense of achievement, relief, excitement and euphoria can become addictive. Even as a complete novice you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by joining us; from the family mile to the half marathon, there really is an event for everyone.
