The Great North 10K – the biggest event of its kind in the North East – will see over 5000 runners pounding the pavements of Gateshead. Obstacle racers will be doing battle at Spartan Race’s Manchester Super UK. Mancunians who fancy a slightly less onerous task can brighten up their day at the city’s Color Run.
