Great North Run 2020

Since 1981 the world’s greatest half marathon (13.1 miles) has welcomed well over one million people across the finish line in South Shields and we’re looking forward to seeing you joining #TeamCPSport and crossing the world famous finish line too.

The 2020 Great North Run takes place on Sunday 13th September 2020 and the run starts in Newcastle through to Gateshead and onto the finish in South Shields.


The course

Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne, the 13.1 mile route takes runners through the City Centre towards the River Tyne where thousands of people will cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge, where if you’re lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead. From there runners will run through Gateshead.

The route, lined by thousands of supporters, leads runners to South Shields where at the top of Prince Edward Road the view of the sea is one of the most welcoming sights along the whole course. From that point there is just over a mile to go and the crowds get louder as runners make their way down the final straight towards the finish line.


Securing your charity place
