Great North Run 2023

The Great North Run is one of the world's most iconic half marathons taking place on 10th September 2023 in Newcastle upon Tyne.

We are thrilled to announce that #TeamAorta is participating in the Great North Run 2023, one of the world’s most iconic half marathons. This event will take place on Sunday 10th September 2023 in Newcastle upon Tyne.

As an organisation that supports patients with aortic dissection, we understand the importance of raising awareness and funding for research into this life-threatening condition. We are excited to participate in this event, which will bring together thousands of runners from all over the world to support various charities, including our own.

The Great North Run is a challenging yet exhilarating event that takes runners through the heart of Newcastle, across the iconic Tyne Bridge, and finishes on the coast in South Shields. This 13.1-mile course is a fantastic opportunity for runners of all levels to challenge themselves and raise funds for charity.

With runners participating in the Great North Run 2023, we are committed to raising awareness of aortic dissection and funding vital research into this condition. We encourage all runners to join our team, raise funds for our charity, and make a difference in the lives of those affected by aortic dissection.

The Aortic Dissection Charitable Trust is proud to be a part of this iconic event, and we look forward to seeing our runners cross the finish line on 10th September 2023. We welcome all levels of runners to join our team for 2024 and support our cause next year as well. Together, we can raise awareness and funds for aortic dissection and improve the lives of those affected by this condition.
