Some of you may be disappointed that the Great North Run on 13th September has been cancelled due to current circumstances. You do not have to let your training go to waste! Please “go the extra mile” to raise funds for us!

​​​Rape Crisis Tyneside Northumberland is asking you to #GoTheExtraHalf to raise money to help us to assist us in continuing to support women and girls. We invite you, to cover a half marathon distance (13.1 miles) and raise money for the work that we do at supporting survivors of sexual violence.

​​You can run, jog, hike, walk or cycle. This could be alone or even a relay with friends each covering a section of the distance.

Please complete your events responsibly, following current government guidelines on social distancing. 

If you need any more information please drop us an email to

How your organisation can help!

Become an Extra Half Corporate Champion!

Become a headline partner and pledge to boost participant’s fundraising efforts, by donating 50% of the total fundraised by individuals – adding an Extra Half for their efforts!

This would mean if Alice runs her half marathon and raises £100 in donations from her friends and family, your organisation would supplement this with a £50 donation, bringing Alice’s total to £150!

Time and a Half to your Staff

Firstly, encourage your staff to participate!

Next, boost their fundraising efforts with ‘time and a half’ – pledging to donate an additional 50% of their total once they finish their challenge (similar to the Extra Half Corporate Champion set-up but only applicable to your staff)
