Great North 10K Gets Great New Route

Great North 10K returns this July with a great new route...

The Great North 10K returns to Newcastle on 3 July and, with a new route planned for 2022, it would be a canny idea to get signed up for this exciting 10,000m challenge!

In a change to previous years, this year the 10K route will start in front of the Baltic and take runners on a journey along the River Tyne, past some of the city's iconic landmarks, before returning to the Baltic to cross the finish line.

The flat and fast route offers a great opportunity to get a new PB, spectator friendly viewing for family & friends, and stunning views of the Newcastle-Gateshead Quayside. Race organisers, Great Run say: "We're looking forward to bringing that big event feel to the Quayside in July, with high energy music zones and an unbeatable on the day experience!"

Everyone who takes part in the Great North 10K 2022 will be entered into a free prize draw for an exclusive guaranteed entry into the Great North Run for the next three years! 10 lucky winners will receive guaranteed entry into the Great North Run in 2022, 2023 and 2024, bypassing the ballot completely!

It’s not all about the adults though, the event also includes the Great North Family Run, a 1 mile challenge for the running stars of the future (age 3+) to take centre stage and earn their own medal. The Great North 10K is accessible and welcoming to all, whether seasoned club runners, or people new to the sport of running looking to take part in their first ever event.  

More information can be found on the Great Run website.
