The Great North Run is the world’s most popular half marathon. With over 50,000 runners taking part each year, it really has a race day atmosphere like no other.
By joining the MS Society’s team of over 500 MS Superstars, you will be treated like a VIP all the way from the motorway start line to the finish line. They’ll provide you with a professional running vest, training and fundraising tips and an on-the-day experience like never before. This includes the loudest and brightest cheer points, with their very own Double Decker cheering bus en route!
“Everyone that greeted us was so friendly, so happy, and so accommodating. I had the best experience raising money for your MS Society and would do it again in a heartbeat.”
Lauren Mathias, MS Superstar, 2015
The MS Society is the leading national charity dedicated to beating MS. They fund research and fight for better treatment and care to help those affected take control of their lives.
MS attacks at random and many of the symptoms are invisible to others. You’re usually diagnosed in your twenties or thirties – news that can be scary and heart-breaking. One day you can be fine, the next you might lose your sight or be unable to move.
By running as an MS Superstar you’ll know that every step you take is making a difference.
*Usual registration fee is £35
