Newcastle 13.1 miles 10 September 2017

The Great North Run is firmly established as the world's greatest half marathon. It’ll be even greater with you in it. Starting in Newcastle, the course takes in the iconic Tyne Bridge, goes through Gateshead passing the famous international athletics stadium and finishes in the coastal town of South Shields. Live music, on-course refreshments and your rowdy support crew will keep you motivated every step of the way.
