Follow in Mo Farah’s footsteps for the biggest half marathon in the world

The Meningitis Now team are asking you to put on your running shoes and join them in the Great North Run.

Rachel Oakley, events fundraiser for Meningitis Now, said: “By running for us you’ll be helping to fight meningitis with every stride and move us one step closer to our vision of a future where no one in the UK dies of meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives.

“Tragically, meningitis and septicaemia continue to affect thousands of people in the UK and kill more under-5s than any other infectious disease. Help us fight back on all fronts by funding research to eradicate the disease, raising awareness and supporting survivors.”

Meningitis Now have limited places available for just £25.

The half marathon takes place on Sunday September 10.

“We offer full support from our friendly events team on training and fundraising,” said Rachel, “as well as a free running vest or T-shirt and post-race reception.”
