The Simplyhealth Great North 10K which takes place in Gateshead is the biggest 10K running event in the North East and one of most iconic and celebrated sporting events in the country.
The event is set to take place on Sunday 28 June 2020 and offers something for everyone whether taking on a 10k run for the first time or training for the Simply Health Great North Run in September, while the Simply Health Great North Family Run allows children from 3 – 16 to run a 1 mile course alongside older family members. Although many treat the 10k event as a formal test of training in preparation of the upcoming half marathon, participants are not required to be running Great North Run in to take part. This event is open to all who wish to run.
The scenic route takes runners along the iconic Newcastle and Gateshead quayside, on the Gateshead side, taking them past some of the town’s most popular attractions, including Sage Gateshead, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and also the Gateshead Millennium Bridge.
Great North 10k participants will have the opportunity to gaze across the Quayside as they pass by as well as pass under the Tyne Bridge, an iconic feature of its sister event, the Simplyhealth Great North Run.
The 1-mile family run starts and finishes in Gateshead International Stadium. Families can register to enter at the dedicated event page.
Combining the challenge of the 10k run with the comradery of the workplace, the Great North 10k Business Challenge is designed to get the entire office involved. Get fit, raise money for charity and have a bit of competitive fun; all excellent reasons why you and your business should take part.
