Great North Run

Date : 9th September

Take part in the biggest and most famous half marathon in the world, joining more than 50,000 people in this iconic race.

Whether you want to set a record, or throw on some fancy dress and jog to the finish line, the Great North Run is the ultimate half marathon for all levels. This race sells out every year and gives you the opportunity to compete against the world’s best athletes (or watch them pass you buy as you take it in your stride!)
