New Castle, England
Distance: 10K · Kids Race
Enjoy the best tour of the Tyne at the North East's biggest 10k. This summer event finishes inside the iconic Gateshead International Stadium. The course goes under the iconic Tyne Bridge and heads along to the Sage Gateshead and BALTIC before bending back along the Quayside for a triumphant lap of the Gateshead International Stadium track, cheered on by your family and friends.
Please note that there is a short cobbled section and speed bump on South Shore Road as we run past the Baltic before 3k and again on the return at 7k, and also on Hillgate underneath the Tyne Bridge. From 8k the course will narrow as you enter the riverside path and run on part of Keelman’s Way before the famous Slog on the Tyne hill. You stay on tarmac paths throughout but please note that in this wooded section and in wet weather the path may be slippy.
