Great North Run 2022 will take place on Sunday 10 September 2023. Please check back for further information about 2023's event.

The general ballot is now open for hopefuls and the race will once again return to its iconic city-to-coast route. Start the Great North Run in Newcastle city centre and run the 13.1miles to South Shields seafront.

The Great North Run is the world’s largest half marathon. It has become an iconic feature of NewcastleGateshead’s cultural and sporting programme and welcomes 52,000 runners to the North East from all over the world.

The Great North Run route returns to its traditional route in 2023 after a historic postponement of the race in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and a changed route in 2021 to race to and from the same place in Newcastle. Great North Run race starts in Newcastle upon Tyne where thousands of runners get ready to take on the the 13.1 mile route through the city centre towards the River Tyne and the first step to cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge. If you're lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead.

From there, runners will travel through Gateshead while being entertained by many bands on the run. The route, lined by thousands of supporters, leads runners to South Shields where at the top of Prince Edward Road 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 runners make their way down the final straight towards the finish gantry.
