Join us in the annual Great North Run

We are urging people to get their running shoes on and sign up for this year’s Great North Run to help fight meningitis on all fronts.

The Great North Run deadline for entries has been extended until July 29.

We’re looking for more runners to sign up and help represent Team Meningitis Trust/Meningitis UK.

Full support will be given on Sunday, September 15.

Runners also receive a free running vest or T-shirt, an information pack on how to prepare and a well-deserved, sports massage at our post-race reception.

To take part, either as an individual or with a group of friends or colleagues, and help us achieve our vision, or for more information, contact me on (01453) 769023 or email
