This iconic half marathon will see you take to the streets of Newcastle and run with 50,000 others. You’ll start in the heart of Newcastle, crossing the famous Tyne Bridge and towards South Shields for a seaside finish.


“The atmosphere before the event was fantastic, there was such excitement in the air as we walked to the starting point. The enormity of the event really struck me: you’re part of a big crowd of people who want to raise money for charity or are running in memory of someone they’ve lost, it’s quite emotional.” Joanna, 2017 participant
