Valentine Runners

Fall In Love With Running

Looking for a special way to spend your Valentine's weekend?

February is just around the corner, so let this be your warning that Valentine's Day is fast approaching. The love it or hate it celebration of romance may divide opinion (commercialised con or good excuse to show your love - you tell us), but something we can all agree on here at runABC is that we do love running, and racing!

One event in the North East that celebrates a love of running (and the day in question) is the Run Newcastle Valentines races. This year the event will take place on 12 February, on its usual course at Newcastle's Town Moor.

The event offers three distances for 2023, there will be a 10K and 5K as in previous years along with a brand new half marathon distance. All the races are held over a flat route which is perfect for those for who are new to running, or looking to stride out for a good time.

The ever-popular Run Newcastle Valentines Relay will also make its return in 2023 - run with your partner, friend or a family member to see who the fastest duo on the Town Moor is! Sounds a pretty perfect way to spend Valentine's weekend to us!

This year the event will support the charity LiveLifeGiveLife - a charity supporting organ donations, £1 from each t-shirt sale will be donated to the cause.
