The Course

Please note: Course may be subject to change.

The 2024 route has everything runners loved last year – the famous AJ Bell Great North Run start line, the iconic Tyne Bridge, and a Newcastle city centre stretch that takes in plenty of famous landmarks including Grey’s Monument and Great North Museum, to name a few! Based on runner feedback from last year’s event, we’ve reduced most of the gravel running section to the finish line on the Town Moor. Expect a smooth out and back on the Great North Road, with plenty of high-energy tunes to help you along, before the final 1k Town Moor stretch to the grandstand finish.
