Your safety is our top priority and we’re continuing to follow coronavirus guidance issued by governments across the UK.
In the meantime, the Great North Run 2021 is planned to go ahead. We would like to reassure you that we’re in regular contact with the event organiser and will continue to keep you informed as we hear further updates from the Great Run Company.
About the event
Join us for the world’s largest half marathon and take in the unique atmosphere.
The Great North Run takes you from Newcastle city centre, over the iconic Tyne Bridge and to the finish near the coast in South Shields. You’ll be one of 57,000 people taking part and you’ll see as many of those aiming for PBs as you’ll see in fancy dress. Plus, remember to look up to see the world famous Red Arrows!
