Great North Run

The route

Restrictions for the 2021 event meant the route changed from the traditional GNR route – and this is still subject to change this year, but the map below shows the planned route. 

Starting in Newcastle itself, you’ll run over the iconic Tyne Bridge, through Gateshead, South Tyneside and onto South Shields for an incredible finish at the waterfront.
