This year, for the first time in our history, MS-UK will be taking part in the iconic Simplyhealth Great North Run!

Described as a celebration of what makes the North East great, the Simplyhealth Great North Run is a 13.1 mile course that cuts through the lively heart of Newcastle, through the rolling countryside, and out towards the glorious South Shields coast where hundreds gather to cheer the runners across the finish line.

It's far more than just a half marathon. By taking part you are not only joining thousands of likeminded racers, you're running the same streets as some of the world's superstar athletes and playing a starring role in an event that is televised across the nation by the BBC!

We’ll support you every step of the way, including practical support to make sure you’re ready to take on this once in a lifetime challenge. You’ll get a personalised welcome pack which includes everything you need to reach your fundraising target, and an MS-UK technical running t-shirt or vest so everyone knows your part of #TeamPurple.
