What’s happening over the Simplyhealth Great North Run Weekend 2018?

The Great North Run is so much more than one weekend of events. Events in the Great North Run calendar kick off as early as July to get us ready to celebrate one of the UK’s biggest half-marathons! There is plenty to do, see and enjoy through this fantastic sporting season – including events and activities for those who don’t want to partake in any of the physical sport but want to express their enthusiasm and support towards the Great North Run.

Below you will find a list of some of the different events and activities taking place.
