The route will start and finish in Baltic Square, in front of the spectacular Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art. From the start, runners will soon pass The Sage before crossing Swing Bridge and turning left on to Skinnerburn Road, heading East for approx 2km. Runners will then loop back along Hadrian’s Wall Path, passing the half-way point, before crossing back into Gateshead and turning right on to Pipewell Gate. The 8km marker signals the turnaround point, and the start of the homeward stretch – one final pass under the famous Tyne Bridge and a 400m sprint to the finish.
Get ready for your big finish line moment, and remember to smile for the official photographers from MarathonPhotos.Live, who will be there to capture you in action.
