Tackle the Aberdeen Half Marathon with #TeamNCT on Sunday 25 August 2019. We have five charity places available and we're looking for runners to raise money for NCT.

This is your chance to tackle the Great Aberdeen Run and explore the City of Aberdeen like never before. Your race will take you to the picturesque Brig o Balgownie across the Don towards the historic cobbles of Old Aberdeen. And, after a loop of Pittodrie Stadium, you will pass by the iconic Marischal College, the Kirk of St Nicholas, His Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen Art Gallery, Robert Gordons College and the Union Terrace Gardens.

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the city and race by its historic landmarks and stunning waterfront.

This year we are linking our runners with their local branch who will keep 30% of the money raised.

We are asking all of our runners to raise a minimum sponsorship of £200 which we hope branches will help with. It's an achievable target and as branch volunteers are masters of fundraising, with your branch behind you it's perfectly possible to exceed the minimum target of £200.

As an Aberdeen Half Marathon Charity Place Runner you will receive:

  • Fundraising advice and Support
  • NCT Running vest
  • NCT Goody Bag
  • The loudest voices out on the course shouting your name at our charity cheer point.
  • Cheering t-shirts for your family and friends to ensure they have an amazing day, too!
  • NCT Runners pack with training plan

If you are interested in joining Team NCT, please apply here. The terms and conditions can be found here.  Applications close on the 7 April 2019 and successful applicants will be announced after 15 April.

Already got a place?

If you’ve already got your own place through the ballot you can still join Team NCT and help support parents in their first 1000 days.

We don’t ask you to raise a minimum amount if you’ve got your own place, we simply ask that you raise as much as you can in support of NCT.
