The Great North Run starts in Newcastle and will take you across the iconic Tyne Bridge on a linear route where you'll finish by the sea in the coastal town of South Shields. Don't forget to look up for the Red Arrows flying overhead!
Sign up for an Oxfam place for £20 and pledge to raise £300 here.
Let us know if you managed to secure a ballot place in the race here.
Your £300 sponsorship could provide shelter for 21 families in a crisis. Tarpaulins and tents… these help provide the materials needed to build a shelter when a crisis hits. Delivered and distributed by Oxfam anywhere in the world, these materials will help put a roof over families’ heads, and give them somewhere to call home until they can get back on their feet.
