‘Join Team Shelter for this incredible experience – the crowd were amazing and I loved every minute of it!’
John, Team Shelter runner, Great North Run 2013

Why do this charity run for Shelter?

Every 11 minutes, a family in Britain loses their home. It is a frightening statistic, and one that everyone at Shelter is committed to changing. With your help and support we can make sure no-one faces bad housing or homelessness alone. We won't stop until there's a home for everyone.
