11 September 2022
The biggest event in the North East makes an epic comeback with a return to its traditional route. With an iconic route from Town Moor, through Newcastle City Centre to South Shields, this running race boasts an unbeatable atmosphere as well as epic views!
It offers an elite race for experienced runners as well as those looking to take on their first half marathon and is a must-do event for anyone looking for a new challenge. There are also mini-races for children around Newcastle Gateshead Quayside, so it's the perfect family event and experience you'll never forget.
The Great North Run was due to celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2020 but had to be held virtually instead. This year this glorious event takes place on 11th September, giving you plenty of chance to get a training plan together and work out event day logistics. After the race is complete, don't forget to check out the official event day photos.
