The North East’s landmark event is back, feel the region come alive as the Great North Run returns to the glorious streets of Newcastle on Sunday 11 September. Experience that epic South Shields finish line celebration with us, as we return to the iconic city to take on the world’s biggest half marathon.

It’s a run for everyone, of all ages and abilities, whether it’s your first event or your 50th.  It's an inclusive celebration of Mancunian running, with music blazing, crowds buzzing, legs pumping and fists bumping. With the infamous high-energy entertainment zones, unbelievable crowd support with cheers of ‘Oggy, Oggy, Oggy’ echoing, and local musicians providing the soundtrack to your run, the Great North Run is a party atmosphere from start to finish.                               

Starting in the heart of the city, enjoy a running route of the city and out to the coastal town of South Shields as you cross over the notorious Tyne Bridge and past Gateshead International Stadium towards that unforgettable finish line feeling, post-race fish and chips and the greatest reward in taking part is the sense of achievement as you cross the finish line, but a shiny new medal, a snazzy finishers t-shirt and a finisher’s bag filled with goodies will await you at the end of the run.
