The countdown to the biggest weekend of sport in the North East is on.
The Great North 5k will kick off the 40th Great North Run celebrations in style on Friday 10 September 2021.
Soak up the party atmosphere on a fun and fast 5k route on the Newcastle Gateshead Quayside. The event will start at 6 pm, allowing plenty of time to refuel on the Quayside after you cross that finish line.
Whether you’re not a fan of the half marathon distance, you’re new to running, or you want to loosen your legs ahead of Great North Run race day, there is no better way to start the GNR weekend.
Brand new for 2021 is the Team Challenge, a fun contest to bring together the city’s thriving business community. It’s four people per team, with the fastest collective time winning a very special trophy and the all-important bragging rights.
Lace-up your trainers and join us on the Great North 5k start line to mark the start of an incredible weekend.
