4 runners holding up medals celebrate in the Sir Bobby Foundation tent at the end of the Great North Run

The Great North Run is a very special event and Sir Bobby was proud to officially start the race on two occasions.

Many people choose to run in memory of a loved one. Or to say thank you for cancer treatment they have received. Or simply as a challenge to get a little bit fitter. Whatever your reasons for wanting to take part, please consider running for our Foundation.

We have a limited number of charity places available for Great North Run 2022 and runners are asked to cover a £50 registration fee and pledge to raise £250 in sponsorship. And, if you register during September, you will benefit from an early bird discount of £10 on the registration fee by using the code ‘SEPTVIP’.

If you already have a place and would like to raise funds for us in 2022, please get in touch and help us continue the work Sir Bobby began when he launched our Foundation, finding more effective ways to detect and treat cancer.

As ever, Sir Bobby’s family and friends will be in our tent in the Great North Run Charity Village to welcome our runners at the finish with refreshments and thanks.
