I've had a user ask for help in sourcing GNR results from 1996. The organisers' website goes back to 2005:

greatrun.org

Could anyone help locate anything older than that?

Watching with interest! I ran it 2001, 2002 and 2003 (I think) and have tried to find official results without success.

Newcastle Journal is available online through the British Library's British newspaper archive up to & inc. 1994

Note that you probably have to subscribe.

I did a quick search, *great north run results' and this turned up some lists of names. The link above contains the results of my search and it appears the newspaper published the GNR results as a matter of course.

Just found this. Can you save the info from the free links? If so then if we all picked three years then we would have the full set soon. I can’t remember when I ran but I’m pretty sure in was between 1989 and 1996

To answer my own question, the search only finds one page of the paper and the OCR is rubbish so I couldn’t even get a hit on my surname

I'd forgotten about this, chunkywizard. I've not actually opened any pages yet but here's a link to the 'Register/Sign In' page: it's very long indeed, so you may be better registering through the link I gave above on 17 Jan. 2019. Good luck :)
