Calling all keen runners and those searching for a new fitness challenge in 2020!

The Huddersfield Town Foundation has secured five places in the Great North Run, the half-marathon from Newcastle to South Shields taking place on Sunday 13 September.

Those looking to rub shoulders with the likes of Sir Mo Farah in crossing over the iconic Tyne Bridge as part of the 13.1 mile route will be tasked with raising funds for the Town Foundation, the official charity of Huddersfield Town.

The Town Foundation, established in 2012 by Dean and Janet Hoyle, deliver various initiatives across themes of Education, Health, Inclusion, Sport and Trust to engage, inspire and positively impact the community of Huddersfield and wider Kirklees.

All successful Town Foundation entrants will receive a Great North Run pack to include practical tips and advice on fundraising activities, a personalised training and diet plan and suggested apps and Spotify playlists to help you keep pace through those dark winter months.
