The Ballot for Great North Run 2016 is now closed!

This year we are able to offer a fantastic package of treats and support to everyone who signs up to run for Butterwick! 

Our friends at Rockliffe Hall 5 star hotel in Hurworth have put together a package of wonderful benefits that you can take advantage of when you sign up to run for Butterwick Hospice.

As part of that package Matty Hynes, one of Teesside's top half marathon runners and personal trainer at Rockliffe Hall Spa has joined forces with Butterwick Hospice to offer 4 exclusive training sessions for our runners. 

Rockliffe Hall are also  offering discounted rates for Butterwick Hospice runners in their fabulous spa. A fantastic place to relax and wind down after a hard training run. 

The team at Rockliffe are also offering special rates on sports massage treatments and to top it all one of our lucky runners will win a 5 star overnight stay in the hotel as everyone running for Butterwick will be entered into an exclusive prize draw. 

Wow, what a package! But wait - there's more. 

On top of all of this our runners will receive special training plans devised by Matty to help them train well for the big day.

Rockliffe's Chef is also providing advice on nutritional recipes to help our runners stay fit and well fuelled. 

With a monthly newsletter for our runners, a blog and training guides we can offer you your best possible experience at this year's Great North Run. 

Finally, on top of our wonderful welcome that awaits you at the Butterwick marquee in the charity village at the end of the race, Rockliffe Hall is also sending their spa therapists to us on the day to massage the life back into tired limbs. 

So there is a massive pack of benefits for you to enjoy whilst you are training and competing in this year's run so why not sign up today by completing the form below. Once you register we will be in touch with all of the details.

Remember while you are facing your training and fundraising challenges to prepare for your exciting run Butterwick Hospice helps more than 2,000 people every year who are trying to cope with the effects of a progressive life limiting illness. By running and raising funds for Butterwick Hospice you are helping our doctors, nurses, therapists and family support workers to support our patients and their loved ones and helping them face their challenges too.

Our lovely pin up photograph is of Butterwick Hospice Ambassador, Martin Griffiths, who ran for the Hospice, and his gorgeous son, Samuel, who ran in the Mini Great North Run! Martin runs in memory of his beautiful wife Judy, who so sadly lost her battle with cancer when Samuel was only 5 months old.

Because of the support of local people who raise funds for Butterwick Hospice Care our team of skilled doctors, nurses and family support workers were able to support Martin and his family. Read his story here. Now he works alongside Butterwick Hospice as an Ambassador to help ensure that Butterwick Hospice is able to help other young families like his.
