Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.



The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

Thanks,
Ian Williams aka Fetch

  • Mike Burns says: 2010 will be my 10th running of the Great North and my 7th in successive years. I love the atmosphere and the bands. Although I live in the Shetland Islands, it is like coming home, as I was born just down the road from Newcastle in Bishop Auckland, Co Durham.
  • DuaneDibbley says: late to join - ran this for the first time last year, loved the atmosphere but the shear volume of runners makes it a sideways run most of the time...got suckered into becoming a GNR 'member' and have a guaranteed place for the next 3 years now!
