Take part in the Great North Run half marathon and raise £250 for Church Army on Sunday 8th September 2019.
If you’ve always wanted to take part in the iconic Great North Run, you can do so in 2019 and join the Church Army team!
Church Army brings hope and shares the gospel in some of the most deprived Communities in the UK and Ireland.

We are asking supporters to enter themselves in the public ballot for Great North Run places which opens in January 2019.
You can sign up for email alerts from the the run organisers Simplyhealth.
If you’re unsuccessful in the public ballot we have some charity places we can allocate and we’d love for you to join us.
Here’s what to do:

  1. Let Church Army know you’re interested in taking part - email us or phone us on 0300 123 2113
  2. Apply for a place in the public ballot here (before midday on 4th February 2019). Please note that it may ask for your payment details during registration but will not take payment unless you are offered a place.
  3. After the ballot has been drawn contact us again to let us know if you have been successful or not.
  4. Our charity places will then be allocated on a first come-first served basis 

In addition to the Great North Run welcome pack you will receive:

  • A Church Army running vest
  • A Church Army certificate
  • An online donation page set up for you
  • The joy of knowing you are transforming lives and communities

Anyone who raises £500 or more in sponsorship for Church Army will have their entry fee refunded!
