Run the Great North Run with Team Shelter

The Great North Run is widely considered to be the greatest half marathon in the world. Since the first starting pistol sounded in 1981, over a million runners have passed over the Tyne Bridge – heading towards the beach-front finish at South Shields.

We want you to tread in their footsteps in 2017, and run this iconic race for the thousands of people facing homelessness.

Why do this charity run for Shelter?

Every 10 minutes, a family in Britain loses their home; a frightening statistic, and one that everyone at Shelter is committed to changing. Your sponsorship pledge helps us to continue offering free advice and support to people facing bad housing and homelessness, ensuring no one has to face the prospect of homelessness alone

Join Team Shelter for this incredible experience - the crowd were amazing and I loved every minute of it!
