This is the world’s largest half marathon, attracting more than 57,000 participants in 2017. The 13.1 mile route takes you from the city centre streets of Newcastle on Tyne, passing over the iconic Tyne Bridge, where if you’re lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead.
From there runners will travel through Gateshead while being entertained by many bands on the run. The route, lined by thousands of supporters, leads runners to South Shields where at the top of Prince Edward Road the view of the sea is one of the most welcoming sights along the whole course.
From that point there is just over a mile to go and the crowds get louder as runners make their way down the final straight towards the finish gantry.
No matter what your running ability – you can sprint the entire length or walk at a snail’s pace if you desire – this is an event everyone enjoys.
