Bupa Great North 5k

Be a part of the iconic Simplyhealth Great North Run weekend at this popular 5k 

If you’re new to running, or a half marathon isn’t your thing, you can still be a part of the famous northern running weekend with the Bupa 5k. Soak up the atmosphere as you cross the Quayside finish line, on the banks of the river Tyne.

This 5km course has the added bonus of giving runners views of the scenic NewcastleGateshead Quayside from both sides of the river. Runners start on the Newcastle side of the river and cross over the Swing Bridge, and then loop to the west before heading back down to pass the Sage on the Gateshead side.

The last kilometre gives runners the chance to run over the Gateshead Millennium Bridge before the final straight back on the Newcastle side.
