The North East’s biggest 10km event takes place on July 8 in 2018 and finishes inside the iconic Gateshead International Stadium.
Passing under the iconic Tyne Bridge, the route also takes runners along to the Sage Gateshead and BALTIC before bending back along the Quayside for a triumphant lap of the Stadium track.
The latest addition to the 10km course is the now infamous ‘Slog on the Tyne’ section – a steady uphill climb that will really put your training to the test.
