The Great North Run will take place in Sunday 10 September. 

The finish line is just 15 miles away from The Seaton Lane Inn so don't miss out. Book your accomodation with us now. 

The half-marathon, which will be staged for the 36th time on September 10, is already the biggest of its kind in the world, with 57,000 accepted entrants from more than 100,000 applicants.

Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne the 13.1 mile route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne where thousands of people will cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge, where if you're lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead.

From there runners will travel through Gateshead while being entertained many bands on the run. The route, lined by thousands of supporters, leads runners to South Shields where at the top of Prince Edward Road the view of the sea is one of the most welcoming sights along the whole course.

From that point there is just over a mile to go and the crowds get louder as runners make their way down the final straight towards the finish gantry.
