Join Walking With The Wounded at the Great North Run

Could you be one of the fantastic men and women running the “World’s Greatest Half Marathon” – the Great North Run – to raise funds for Walking With The Wounded and support wounded veterans into work and independence? To mark the 10th birthday of Walking With The Wounded we will be returning to the infamous Marathon des Sables with a 10-strong team including our CEO Ed Parker and a celebrity to be announced in May.


Do you want to be part of our team for the Great North Run 2019 on Sunday 8 September? Could you fundraise for WWTW?

It’s never too early to register interest for the future. We've got 15 places for this event which should be on everyone's bucket list.
