Take this a fun run. An amazing experience. 56,000 odd competitors. The locals are totally amazing, coming out of there homes to cheer everyone along, inc giving oranges and jelly. If you think you are going to finish on your predicted time its one BIG NO! I'd advise you to get to the very front of your pen if you want anything near your training time. It took 40 minutes to get to the start line. At mile six I thought to myself that I was going to give up trying to get to speed, there were people clearly in the wrong pens who were walking a mile two! I found myself jumping up and down the high kerbs to get past slower runners. The last maybe two miles are down hill, from a reasonably flatish route. We must have walked a good mile at the end back to the car. I found a local sports centre for a shower. I passed FOUR people having their hearts pumped.

Marred by public transport delays and mess. First up, I stayed central to the race and set off at 9:30, and didn’t get back until about 5pm. That’s just too long on my feet! Following the directions given, even though I was starting at the back, I had to get to my pace from the front. At 10:30 I gave up and jumped a barrier into the start, then faster an hour of walking I had a 45 minute wait in the sun to even start, by which time my back was spasming. I ran really strongly and was very tired at the end, after which I faced 30 minutes walk to the ferry and 90 minutes in a queue with no shelter or loos. By this time I could barely stand and had to sit. After crossing the Tyne we finally grabbed a cab back into town! I also take issue with the terrible use of plastic, single use bottles were strewn everywhere, all over the road. The Clif desk also created terrible mess, plastic and bloks were littered all over the road, and with the discarded water, it formed a sticky mass on my shoes. Gross, and probably hard to clean up. People didn’t even try not to litter and also didn’t pull to the side to walk, so I bumped into their backs. I also counted four ambulances blue-lighting people off the roads which added to the really chaotic feel. Running over tha Tyne bridge WAS amazing and the locals are fantastic supporters, it is a great race. But the public transport queues absolutely take the pee and the littering looked awful. Probably a great race if you're willing and able to stay on your feet for a minimum of 7 hours or so, and are fairly aroused by queueing. I have some great memories but will not be entering again, it’s just too messy, wasteful, chaotic and stressful with all that queuing. Great medal and t shirt, above average goody bag too.

My favourite run. This is simply the best run I have completed. The local families come out in huge numbers to encourage the runners, offer sweets and fruit along the way, I always feel so welcome. Top athletes take part too, Mo Farah has run the last 2 times i've been. Stop thinking about it and book it!
