Join us for the world’s largest half marathon in Newcastle this September!
Thank you for your interest in participating in an event on behalf of The Vegan Society. Please note that due to Covid-19 The Vegan Society has had to place some staff on the Job Retention Scheme. As a result of this temporarily reduced staff capacity and uncertainty over whether mass participation events will be able to run in September, it may be a few weeks before you hear from anyone regarding your registration. Please bear with us during this uncertain time and one of our team members will be in touch as soon as possible.
Date: Sunday 13th September 2020
Registration fee: £25
Sponsorship Target: £300
Established in 1981, Great North Run saw 57,000 people take part last year, making it the largest half marathon in the world. It attracts thousands of supporters who line the streets and will cheer you on all the way from the city centre start to the beautiful north-east coast finish line in South Shields. The race has been won by Sir Mo Farah for the last five years, setting record times and will no doubt be making an appearance to uphold his title. You may even catch a glimpse of The Red Arrows, which perform an air show over the course on race day.
Any money you raise through your sponsorship will help us continue our important work, campaigning for better provision for vegans, supporting existing vegans and reaching new audiences with our messages about the benefits of veganism. In turn, you will play your part in saving the lives of thousands of animals and making the planet a better place to live.
If you choose to become a part of The Vegan Society’s team, we will support you every step of the way, by providing:
- Fundraising tips to help you raise as much sponsorship as possible
- Training tips and advice
- A dedicated staff member to support you and answer any queries directly
- The Vegan Society branded running vest
If you have your own place in the run you can still choose to raise sponsorship for The Vegan Society, just get in contact and we’ll still support you all the way to finish line.
