Join Team Incredible and take on the world’s greatest half marathon in 2018...

Starting in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, the 13.1-mile route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne before thousands of people cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge - where, if you're lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead.

Running east through South Shields, you reach the coast before turning down the hill towards the finish line and your very own post-race celebration!

All Team Incredible members will receive:

  • Sue Ryder running vest
  • fundraising advice and support from our team
  • training advice and support from our professional running coach
  • a great post-race celebration for you and your family.

Already got a place? No problem!

If you already have your own place and would like to support Sue Ryder, please email events@sueryder.org so that you can take advantage of all our Team Incredible benefits.
