Get involved Fundrasing events Great North Run Great North Run Join Team BASIC at this year's Great North Run, one of the world's biggest half marathons. Starting in Newcastle Upon Tyne the 13.1-mile run takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne and across the iconic Tyne Bridge. From there runners will travel through Gateshead and onto South Shields where they will be greeted by the North Sea. From that point, there is just over a mile to go until you cross the finish line.
