The Great North Run

The Great North Run

The world’s leading half marathon, the Great North Run, was first staged in 1981 where just over 12,000 people took part on the 13.1 mile course from Newcastle upon Tyne to South Shields; with entries reaching 57,000 people in 2014.
This year the Great North Run took its place in history as it became the first International Association of Athletics Federations event in the world to welcome its millionth finisher.

The event is broadcast on BBC and attracts a host of world-class athletes. Previous runners include some of the most famous names in distance running; Mo Farah, Paula Radcliffe and Haile Gebrselassie.
