Support us Events and fundraising Our fundraising events Great North Run 2018 We now have places available for the 2018 Simplyhealth Great North Run for #TeamDaisyChain. The Great North Run is the premier event in the Great Run series and firmly established as Britain’s biggest participation event. From just 12,000 runners at the very first staging in 1981, the event has now grown to a record 55,000 accepted entrants from over 100,000 applicants in 2012. Starting in Newcastle, the course takes in the iconic Tyne Bridge, goes through Gateshead passing the famous international athletics stadium and finishes in the coastal town of South Shields. Live music, on course refreshments and thousands of cheering supporters will keep you motivated every step of the way. Team Daisy Chain participants are asked to raise a minimum of £300 in sponsorship. Unfortunately, the online allocation for this event is now full. Please call us on 01642 531248.
