Great North Run 2022

We are looking for runners who can raise as much as possible to help the many animals in our care.

If you could raise at least £300 in sponsorship and would like to run for a local charity where every penny raised is vital to help animals in need within the North East, please get in touch with [email protected]. We will send you a sponsor form and a Stray Aid t-shirt to wear on the big day, you can also set up an online fundraising page on

If you are lucky enough to secure your own Great North Run place through the ballot but would still like to raise money for Stray Aid, please get in touch, we’d love to have you join the Stray Aid team.
