Great North Run for Pancreatic Cancer Action

You’re guaranteed a run like no other – and a finish line feeling you’ll never forget.

📅 Sunday 10th September 2023


What is the Great North Run?

The run is famous for its inclusive atmosphere, unbeatable on-route entertainment and warm Geordie welcome, with 60,000 runners taking to the streets of Newcastle.

You’ll run from the centre of Newcastle to the beautiful coastline of South Shields. This really is a once in a lifetime race experience.

Why take part for Pancreatic Cancer Action?

We need your help to make sure more people survive Pancreatic Cancer through early diagnosis.

There are almost 10,500 people newly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer each year in the UK. That’s 29 every day. Sadly, there are almost 9,600 pancreatic cancer deaths in the UK every year. That’s 26 every day.

We are the only UK charity that specifically focuses on improving pancreatic cancer survival rates through early diagnosis in everything we do. Quite simply, we know that pancreatic cancer can be detected early, and with your support, we will do all we can do to make sure this happens more and more.

Join team PCA and together we can save lives through early diagnosis.
