Take on the UK’s biggest half marathon and run from Newcastle to South Shields – you might even spot the Red Arrows!

When joining #TeamDementiaUK you’ll receive:

  • A dedicated member of the fundraising team to support you to the finish line and beyond
  • Training plans
  • A fundraising guide, as well as fundraising advice, hints and tips in the build up to the event
  • A branded Dementia UK running vest for race day!
  • Support from the team on race day
  • A range of Dementia UK fundraising materials (collection buckets, posters, balloons etc.) to make any events you hold look amazing.

Volunteer with us on the day!

Roles vary from making as much noise as possible at a cheer point to making hard-earned cups of tea for runners post event. We’ll provide you with a Dementia UK t-shirt and all you need to bring on the day is your enthusiasm! Please fill in our short volunteer form and we will be in touch with more details.

“The amount of support I received from Dementia UK coming up to the run was amazing. There was a 12 week training programme with a training night at Gateshead Stadium where you got to meet other people running for the charity. You didn’t know these people but you felt as though you were part of one big team. There was even support when I started doubting myself just before the run but Dementia UK encouraged me to believe in myself.”

– Maxine, who ran the Great North Run for Dementia UK.
