About the Great North Run:

The Great North Run is the largest half marathon in the world, taking place annually in North East England each September. Participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields. The run was devised by former Olympic 10,000 m bronze medallist and BBC Sport commentator Brendan Foster. 
 
The 2020 race will be held on Sunday 13th September and promises to be another popular event with a great atmosphere. For further details on the race please see the Great Run website at:
