Complete the day's Great Run experience with a trip to the Event Village, the perfect post-run destination for you and your supporters. The Village hosts both Simplyhealht Stretch and Massage Zones along with an array of charities, partner stands and the all-important Wylam Beer Tent.
Before you get distracted by the stands, charities, food, and drink on offer be sure to head to the Simplyhealth Stretch Zone where our qualified instructor will be able to guide you through key stretches, proven to help those tired muscles. You could also partake in Simplyhealth's 'Rate my Gait' activity in the same area, which helps asses your running style and will give you tips to help stay fit and injury free.
Once you are all stretched out there are 121 charities waiting to meet and greet runners. Many will be providing food and drink to aid your post-event recovery - making it a great place for some well-earned relaxtion.
Contact your charity to see if they will be there. The Bronze charity tent is located in Gypsies Green open air stadium by the Wylam Beer Tent and next to the Simplyhealth Massage Zone.
In the Beer Tent you can get your hands on the famous Runner's Reward pale ale. There's also live music, street food and a Creation Station with craft activities for the kids.
Pre-book your free massage at the Simplyhealth Massage Zone by visiting find-a-physio.com/booking. We have bookable massage sessions and free walk-up sessions.
Around the Event Village, our partners will be on hand to help you celebrate, rest and recover and will be handing out samples and bespoke Great Run offers along with advice and guidance on their products.
Stands and activations will be hosted by Special K, Garmin, Great Run official merchandise, ENGIE, Clif Bar, Nando's, John West, Alton Sports, Wagamama, Trans Pennine Express and Arnold Clark.
Gypsies Green is where you will find the largest number of toilets, but there are more at the Meeting Point area, at the baggage buses, by the Grandstand, and along the Coast Road.
