Run for us at the Great North Run - 11 September 2017

This hugely popular half marathon takes runners through the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, towards the Tyne River where thousands of people will cross the iconic Tyne Bridge before reaching Gateshead and South Shields.

With the Red Arrows flying overhead, sea views and bands to entertain along the route, it is easy to see why the Great North Run is the world’s biggest half marathon.
