The Great North Run 2017

The Big Give

Do you fancy running and raising funds for PTSD Resolution on the 10th September 2017?

The Great North Run is the biggest half marathon in the UK and the World with over 57000 runners taking part in the famous 13.1 mile run, where participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields.  The race was devised by former Olympic 10,000 metre bronze medallist and BBC Sport commentator Brendan Foster.

Although a high profile event for elite runners, four-time Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah won the Great North Run 2016 and became the first man to achieve three consecutive wins, it is for all abilities and ages with many using the run to raise money for charity and take part in fancy dress.

PTSD Resolution is a charity helping veterans, territorial army and reservists who are struggling to settle back into a normal work and family life because of military trauma suffered during service in the armed forces.   So why not set yourself a 2017 challenge and run for us, while raising money for a worthwhile cause.
