Great North Run 2021
Join Team Hearing Dogs for the 40th Anniversary of the World's Greatest Half Marathon!
Sunday 12th September 2021
Newcastle to South Shields
Would you like to join the Hearing Dogs Running Team in the 2021 Great North Run? We have a number of guaranteed charity places available for this amazing half marathon which takes you from the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne across the iconic Tyne Bridge and out to the coastal town of South Shields with an atmosphere that is simply electric!
Runners are asked to pledge £300 sponsorship which will enable us to create even more life changing partnerships and help deaf people leave loneliness behind. As part of the Hearing Dogs team you will receive a full Supporter Pack including sponsor forms and a running vest, as well as ongoing support with your fundraising and a warm welcome with refreshments and the offer of a sports massage once over the finishing line.
If you are lucky enough to gain a place through the public ballot and want to run for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, please let us know. Own-placed runners are asked to raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship to claim their running vest.
"The support we received throughout the process was fantastic, we really felt like part of a team and so valued by the charity. Meeting the Hearing Dog in the tent after the race was such a highlight- we simply had to sign up again for next year!" K. Taylor, runner in 2019.
