Get your running shoes on or join our cheering squad… Be a part of Team NCT!

If you’re looking to experience the euphoria of crossing the finish line at the Great North Run or Aberdeen Half Marathon, why not apply for one of our charity places? Or you can offer much-needed support from the sidelines

We’re looking for people who want to go the extra mile, literally, to raise money for NCT.

Applications are now open for our Great North Run and Aberdeen Half Marathon 2019 charity places. We have five places available for each event and would love to have you join Team NCT.

Application forms for the Great North Run can be found here and for the Aberdeen Half Marathon click here.

The Aberdeen Half Marathon is on Sunday 25 August and the Great North Run is on Sunday 8 September 2019.

We want people who are excited about raising the most money for NCT, so we can support more parents in their first 1,000 days.

The information you provide in your application form will help us make our decision, so please be honest and provide as much detail as possible as this will increase your chances of gaining one of our charity places.

If you are successful you will be required to pay a non-refundable registration fee of £25 and raise a minimum of £350 for the Great North Run and £200 for the Aberdeen Half Marathon. By completing the application you are agreeing to these terms.

What support will you receive?

By joining Team NCT you will receive continued support to help you smash your fundraising target including:

  • Your very own high performance running vest along with your name
  • Regular emails to provide you with training and fundraising tips
  • Support from your local branch who are all experienced fundraisers

  • A cheer point on the day of the race

  • A post race celebration

Please pass this information on to anyone who may be interested in a place.

If you are interested in applying you will need to complete the application forms by 7 April. We will let successful applicants know by 15 April.

Be on the cheering squad

Take snaps for us
We’d love to have pictures of our runners and cheering squad. You don’t need a fancy camera – a mobile phone will do. For information email daniella.abraham

We’re also looking for enthusiastic volunteers to support our runners on the course of the London Marathon, Great North Run and Aberdeen Half Marathon.

We’ll kit you out with an NCT t-shirt and goody bag and provide flags and whistles so you can really make some noise!

You can play a part in helping us to document each legendary event by sharing your creative photography or video skills with us.

Remember, even if you’re not running or cheering, you can still play a part in supporting Team NCT. You can share the Justgiving pages through your social media networks and help raise funds.
