Great North Run Events

The Great North Run is more than just a one-day event - it's a packed weekend of celebration, personal achievement and fun for all ages!

Two months prior to the Great North Run, the Great North 10k will take place. Although the event is a race in its own merit, many consider it to be a great training exercise in preparation for the Great North Run itself.

During the Great North Run weekend, many events will take place such as: the Great North 5k and the Mini and Junior Great North Runs

Brand new in 2021 was the Team Challenge, a fun contest to bring together the city's thriving business community. It was a great opportunity for businesses to encourage a healthy outlook for staff, engage in all-important team building, and focus on charity fundraising.
