The Course

The route will start and finish in front of the spectacular Baltic.  From the start, runners will follow Hillgate, run past The Sage and under the Tyne Bridge, before a 1.5km stretch along Pipewell Gate.  

You’ll then loop back with the river on your left, cross over the famous Swing bridge, and head West along Hadrian’s Wall Path for 2.5km.  After hitting the turnaround point, you’ll start heading for home along Skinnerburn Road, cross back over Swing Bridge and take a final left turn on to Hillgate for the final stretch to the finish line.  Get ready for your big finish line moment, and remember to smile for the official photographers from MarathonPhotos.Live, who will be there to capture you in action. 

Please note course may be subject to change.
