Great North Family Run

Congratulations to everyone who took part in this year's Simplyhealth Great North Family Run event. We hope you're feeling really proud of yourself! Entries for the 2020 event, which takes place on Sunday 28 June are now open! 
The Family Run is open to everyone aged 3 years old and over, we recommend budding runners between 3-8 participate with an adult, which means everyone needs to buy an entry to take part. Those aged 9 and over can run alone, but please make sure anyone aged 16 and under is accompanied by an adult on the day. 


The Simplyhealth Great North Family Run starts and finishes inside Gateshead International Stadium.

Runners set off on the mile route, travelling along the stadium track and heading out of the stadium and along past its popular football pitches.

There you will turn onto Tyne Main Road before heading along Neilson Road and returning back into the stadium where cheering crowds will welcome you as you cross the finish line!
