The Junior and Mini courses both start on the Newcastle side of the River and take the young runners across to Gateshead via the Swing Bridge.
The Juniors have a slightly extended version that loops along the river, but both the Juniors and the Minis will cross back across the Gateshead Millennium Bridge towards the finish line on the Newcastle side.
There are plenty of public transport options for you to choose from, and the start area is a short walk from the centre of town. Please be aware that there are some rail strikes on event day so please do take this into consideration when planning your journey. You can find out more at northernrailway.co.uk/strike
If you'd prefer to drive to the event please plan your travel in advance as there are limited parking spaces available.
First-hand event reviews from people who've been there, done that and got the breathable T-shirt, really help everyone choose their next event.
It only takes a few seconds and every month we randomly select someone who has taken the time to write a review and send them a £50 Wiggle voucher.
