The Great North Run 2022
Join us for the iconic Great North Run, a stunning city to sea course. We’ll be celebrating the return of the traditional finish line in South Shields. Lap up the incredible local support and ‘that’ view as you reach the final mile, a day to remember forever – including the Red Arrows! We'll be there cheering you on, dancing and pumping out the music! And join us for that all important cuppa and natter at the end. Can't wait to see you there!

The Great North Run is the world's largest half marathon, taking place annually in September. Participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields in the North East of England. The run was devised by former Olympic 10,000 m bronze medalist and BBC Sport commentator Brendan Foster.
Only the London Marathon comes close to attracting similar numbers of athletes each year.
