Great North Run volunteers



Sunday 8 September 2024

What volunteering roles are available? 

Cheering stations  

We need as many people as we can get to join our cheering stations along the race to cheer as loudly as they can to encourage our incredible runners as they go past. Seeing someone from the charity you’re supporting means so much to a runner and can give them that extra motivation and push they need to keep going! 

Meet and greet

We’re looking for a friendly bunch of volunteers to greet our runners and help with refreshments as they arrive back to our charity area after the race. 

How to apply

If you think this is the role for you or you would like more information, please express interest to our volunteer programme manager by emailing
