    Well done to all those who join in the summer of sport and tried our fabulous events on the stunning NewcastleGateshead Quayside!

    With returning favourites of the 5K and Sprint Duathlon. The runs and duathlon will start in on the Quayside this year, with transition at Baltic Square in Gateshead. The routes will take in a selection of the Tyne’s famous bridges, all on completely closed roads.


    FAST 5K - this is your chance to TRY the distance for the first time, or maybe improve your best so far on this exciting course. Run with friends and celebrate with brunch afterwards! Its flat, fast and the crowds will cheer you the whole way.


    Sprint - Closed roads give you the opportunity to TRY a duathlon beginning with a 5k run, 20k bike and 3K run. The stunning city backdrop and iconic quayside location should inspire everyone, with a mass start in Baltic Square creating a fantastic atmosphere.


    As a team you must complete a 10KM continuous relay by running loops of various distances. Its FUN FAMILY FITNESS! Founded by Paula Radcliffe and her family, join in the fun with all the family in Baltic Square.
