Simplyhealth Junior & Mini Great Tees Run
Get the kids involved and sign them up for the Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great Tees Run. The runs, which are open to budding runners aged 3-14, give children the chance to experience their own finish line moment and wear their medals with pride after finishing the 2k or 4k route.
Both runs start and finish on Riverside Road in Stockton-on-Tees. The young runners will travel along the North side of the River Tees; the Mini runners then turn right to cross the Infinity Bridge and Junior runners contine on and across the River at the Tees Barrage. Both runs then return along the River’s South side, crossing the Millennium Footbridge, and back to the finish.
