Claremont Road, Newcastle, Northumberland, NE24NL, GB
The Great North Run is definitely one for the experience bucket list. The course is buzzing the whole way round but is mostly boring roads. There are plenty of feed stations, lots of people and an amazing atmosphere. Lovely to finish on the iconic coast
Whether you're a fun runner or an elite, the Great North Run is a fantastic experience. The event organisers, the volunteers, the supporters, and even the runners all play a vital part in making this run an amazing weekend. With stars like Mo Farrah and Nell McAndrew joining in, who wouldn't want to take part? As for the charities, their part is also just as important as they are being represented by the runners to spread awareness and raise cash for their cause whilst supporting from the sidelines and at the finish in the charity village where emotions run high from the sheer relief of crossing that line either in memory of a loved one or simply just to help, either way the people in the charity village are extremely helpful and it's a great place to meet your family and friends. All in all a fantastic day out!!
