The Great North Run is the largest half marathon in the world, taking place annually in North East England each September. Participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields. The run was devised by former Olympic 10,000m bronze medallist and BBC Sport commentator Brendan Foster.
Next year's event will take place on Sunday 8 September 2019.
Raising money for charity is a big part of the Great North Run experience for many runners, so sign up to get a public ballot place and run for children with Crohn's and colitis.
The ballot will open in January, sign up to the Great North Run reminder service to be the first to know when you can register.
