The Great North Run is officially the world's biggest half marathon. If you join Team OCD-UK you’ll run alongside 57,000 other runners, cheered on by tens of thousands of supporters and enjoy a fantastic atmosphere and stunning sea views as you finish.

The Great North Run takes runners on a fantastic 13.1 mile route around Newcastle's city centre, over the iconic Tyne Bridge for the 2021 event.

We will have our biggest ever field taking part for the 2021 Great North Run with over 30 OCD-UK runners set to take part.

LOW fundraising target of £375 and NO registration fee! 
We just ask you raise the first £35 before the end of July.
