    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    An Amazing event if somewhat overwhelming! According to the Results I came in 3rd in my V75 category. Was there a medal/trophy etc due which I failed to collect as I was not expecting to do that well!! ?

    I love the friendly crowd and the big race atmosphere
    It’s good to watch the TV coverage afterwards
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    4th time running GNR and this year ran for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. I love this event, even though there are 50k+ runners, you are made to feel you are still one special runner. Supporters are just amazing. You really do not need to carry water or snacks as they are available throughout the race. Children handing out ice pops, haribo, oranges etc!
    The event is busy as you may expect but the overall atmosphere is incredible. Loved the showers and hosepipes especially as it was very hot. Also spray sun tan lotion available at the start - great if runners had forgot to bring! My favourite part of the race has to be the start, the famous music 🎶 played in the TV and commentator. I love the last couple of miles when you run down the hill to South Shields seafront. I definitely want to go back for my 5th time. Every runner should at least run this once.

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Massive race - one for the bucket list but very busy. Love it and do it every year but know about the crowds before you go.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Loved the race even more this year. Fantastic weather and even more support than ever!! The only thing that let it down this time was the lack of Red Arrows.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Great day. Great weather. Great atmosphere. Great supporters. Great experience. Great time. Great North Run.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Great event very well organised found the course a little boring but loved running over the bridge I was pleased it wasent Laps hate Laps the crowds were awesome which well and truly made up for the motorway running love the idea of the busses for the bag drop albeit challenging to walk to the start line was epic the finish area great and easy to find your bus at the end however getting back to Newcastle was a complete pain we had a 3 hour window to catch our train but we missed it due to volume of traffic
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    The experience was brilliant but we were found it hard to run it due to the number of walkers from quite early on.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Great great great event - the only thing that I thought was REALLY disgusting - were the number of men whipping out their dicks to take a piss alongside the event trucks at the start of the run on town moor.... as a result - we had to run through their urine puddles - I live in Australia and attended many running events - this was my first in the UK and I have never seen this disgusting behaviour before....
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Amazing run so well organised with crowd support the whole way. I loved every second. Paid for membership for the next 3 years as have to do it again.
