Great North Run

Sunday 12th September 2021

Dear runners,

Welcome to our Great North Run 2021 Team, we are thrilled to have you on the team!

As part of our team we will provide you with a vest to run in, temporary tattoos to wear on the day if you wish and a hoodie which you can collect from our tent in charity village at the finish line.

We do ask that you aim to raise £150 so we can help more animals in the North East.

We’ve popped a size guide for both the vests and hoodies below. Could you please fill out the form below with your details so we can get going with your vests. Please note: vests are usually sent out around July.

This year, we’re trying to minimise the amount of paper we’re using to help the environment so we’re sending fundraising packs via email.

We do have packs we can send out to you which you can ask for using the form below. 

Our Claremont Road shelter is very close to the start line so we do welcome runners there for refreshments and the use of toilet facilities before the run. You would also be welcome to leave any layers of clothing there too. 

If you require bags to be brought to the finish line, we can do that for you. We ask for bags to be dropped off by Friday 10th September so we can pack these on to the van for you. Bags should be dropped off at our Benton Shelter, Benton North Farm, Benton Lane, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE12 8EH.

As always, our tent at the finish line will be stocked with complimentary refreshments for our runners. We will send you the location of our tent once we have it from the Great Run Company. 

If there is anything at all that you need, please contact me direct by emailing beth@dogandcatshelter.com or calling 0191 215 0435.

Sending our best wishes from all of the team and thank you for running for us!

Kind regards,

 Beth Codling.
