Guaranteed places in this year’s Great North Run

16 Jul 2008

Epilepsy Action is looking for people to take part in the Great North Run this October.

It’s one of the most popular half marathons in the world.  Taking place in the north-east of England, it starts in Newcastle city centre, crosses the famous Tyne Bridge, passes through Gateshead and South Tyneside before finishing at the seafront in South Shields.

If you’re interested in doing the Great North Run for us, we have a number of guaranteed places available.   All we ask you to do is aim to raise £275 sponsorship and pay a £40 registration fee for your place.

UPDATED 1 November 2008: The Great North Run has been and gone, but thanks to everyone who took part.  Our main Great North Run page has more information on how to get involved now.
