Great North Run – Charity places available

September 8

Take part in the biggest half-marathon, the Great North Run! You may even spot yourself on tv!

We would like a team of 5 to run for Inter Care and help provide vital medical supplies for vulnerable people across sub-Saharan Africa.

About us: Inter Care – Medical Aid for Africa is a charity in Syston, Leicestershire. Established in 1974, Inter Care sends targeted medical aid to around 100 rural health units in some of the poorest parts of Africa. The health units we support include clinics, hospitals, dispensaries and centres for orphaned and vulnerable children in Ghana, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and Malawi. We send medicines and healthcare goods that are donated to us from a range of pharmaceutical companies, medical manufacturers and health professionals.



Places in the Great North Run sell out each year and so we encourage you to register as soon as possible. Registration for the event is £40 per person.

  1. To register, please complete the booking form and return it to with your non-refundable registration deposit to guarantee your place.
  2. You will then receive an email from the Great North Run asking you to enter your details online and complete their terms and conditions.
  3. A token will then be sent to you via the Great North Run. You will then be able to select a time to participate in the event.


We do ask that you raise the minimum sponsorship of £500.

You can set up your very own Just Giving page so that friends, family, and colleagues can sponsor you online. You will also be able to add pictures and update your blog on how your training is going to encourage more donations. We will provide any help or advice you might need to help maximise your fundraising.
