The Courses

Junior Course

Mini Course


Both of the Junior and Mini routes start on Riverside Road, lining up in the same place as 1,000 others for the Simplyhealth Great Tees 10k, which takes place later in the day.

The young runners will travel along the the north side of the River Tees, with the Mini runners turning right to cross the Infinity Bridge while Junior runners continue on and cross the river at the Tees Barrage.

Both of the runs then return along the river’s south side, crossing the Millennium Footbridge, and head back to the finish line on Riverside Road.

Please note: the course may be subject to change.
