The electrifying atmosphere of this half marathon is what makes it such a special event. Starting in Newcastle, the course takes in the iconic Tyne Bridge, goes through Gateshead passing the famous international athletics stadium and finishes in the coastal town of South Shields.
All of our runners are provided with a training and fundraising pack, and a Meningitis Research Foundation running vest. With support available from our fundraising team, we ask you to pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £325.
