Run the Great North Run 2019 for Self Help Africa and raise vital funds for charity.

2019 will mark the 39th staging of this iconic event and the first time Self Help Africa have entered a team!

Our five charity places have been snapped up already, but there’s still chance to join ‘Team SHA’ on Sunday 8th September by entering the public ballot.

The ballot opened on Wednesday 2nd January and closes on Monday 4th February, it’s always oversubscribed but you might get your hands on a place! You’ll pay a £56 registration fee and you can choose to fundraise for a charity of your choice.

Each member of our fantastic team will receive:
• An exclusive Self Help Africa running vest and fundraising pack
• Personal support from our fundraising team
• A Great North Run race pack which will include your race number, timing chip and event information
• Plenty of encouragement, enthusiasm and smiles throughout your challenge!

Funds raised will support our work with vulnerable farming communities in sub-Saharan Africa.

For more information, or to be added to our waiting list (in case any of our runners have to withdraw before the event), contact Samantha Howlett on
