Great North Run
Sunday 8th September 2019

This year, the world's greatest half marathon returns to the North East. With over 57,000 people taking to the streets, this carnival of colour and noise attracts people from all over the world to take part.

MS Research and Relief Fund will once again be entering a team of runners into the event to raise funds to support our vital services.

If you'd like to push yourself in aid of people affected by Multiple Sclerosis in the North East and beyond, please read on for more information about how you can join #TeamMSRRF.

Places are now available on #TeamMSRRF for the 2019 Great North Run! There is no entry fee for participants via one of our charity spaces and we ask all runners to raise a minimum of £250 in sponsorship.

Every penny you raise will go towards improving the lives of people affected by Multiple Sclerosis across the North East of England.

We as a charity will provide you with full help and support along the way. We will provide you with a bespoke MSRRF running vest as well as support during your run from an official cheer station along the route.

Ballot Entry

Another way to enter the Great North Run is via the general ballot. This would allow you to pay for your own entry and still join #TeamMSRRF on the day.

We will offer you all the support, stewardship and benefits that our charity entrants receive - including a running vest and access to the post-race marquee - but we will not require a set minimum sponsorship in order to do so - please just raise as much as you can!

The ballot opens in January and can be found on the Great Run website. Once your ballot entry is confirmed and you would like to join Team MSRRF, please email Jon at or contact us to let us know.
