Great North Run

A classic in the running calendar, this half marathon features 57,000 runners, the iconic Tyne bridge and a beachside finish in South Shields.

A huge thank you to all our 16 runners who took part in  the 2021 Great North Run, to raise a fantastic £6,474 in total.  Will you take the baton into 2022?
