Please note: Entries for the new membership term (2022-2024) are now sold out. 

The membership scheme guarantees the runner priority entries into the next three Great North Run's. 

Please click here for more details.


Please note, you still need to pay the entry fee and register to enter each year, but the membership status means that you will be sent a priority link to enter and won’t need to apply for the ballot.


Members are contacted via email in November each year and given a priority entry window to secure their place in the following year's Great North Run.
