Gateshead Half Marathon route

Beginning on the Felling By-Pass, a short walk from the Event Village in Gateshead International Stadium, this chip-timed closed road half marathon will take you along the scenic River Tyne, past iconic landmarks such as the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, Sage Gateshead, BALTIC Centre For Contemporary Arts, Tyne Bridge and past the historic Swing Bridge.

The course will then turn back, giving you a chance to see these landmarks from a different perspective.

You will cross the finish line after running a lap of the Gateshead International Stadium track to the deafening cheers of your family and friends, a finish line that has previously seen 2 world record times run across it.

The course is fully-closed and professionally measured and marked, allowing you to concentrate on giving your best and enjoying the view along the flat and fast route.
