The course

Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne the route takes you through the city centre towards the River Tyne over the iconic Tyne Bridge, with the famous Red Arrows passing overhead.

You’ll then travel through Gateshead while being entertained by bands on the run, and on to South Shields where 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 you make your way down the final straight towards the finish gantry.
