Bupa Great North 10k
Date Posted: 22/05/14
July 13th sees Newcastle and Gateshead hold the North East’s most popular 10k running event, the Bupa Great North 10k.
Its origins date back to the 70s when community running was starting to be a fashionable and fun activity to take part in.
The race finishes inside the Gateshead International Stadium to the sound of cheers from family and friends waiting in the stands. The friendly event is open to all levels and speeds, and anyone over the age of 15 can join.
This year’s route passes by the Newcastle Gateshead Quayside, the Millennium Bridge, The Sage and the modern BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.
Around 5,000 runners will be warming up for the event on the morning of Sunday July 13th. There is a £25 registration fee which includes provision of a medal, t-shirt, celebratory pack for finishing and a time detector.
Book in early at a Newcastle hotel to make sure you get a spot during this popular time.
