Everyone who signs up for the AJ Bell Great North 10k is a runner, regardless of finish time, and everyone has their reason for running.

The Course

Route Map

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, Eldon Square 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.

What You Get

We have made the decision to introduce optional finisher tees to our Great Run events. You can choose to forgo a finisher tee shirt at the point of entry, and in lieu of this we will make a donation to the National Trust Woodlands Appeal. Find out more here. We will donate a portion of the fulfilment costs for each runner who chooses this option to the fund and commit that this donation to be a approx. £20,000.
