Simply Health Great North Run 2018
The Simply health Great North Run returns on Sunday 9th September, sees thousands of runners take on the half marathon challenge every year. Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne, the 13.1 mile course is lined with supporters all the way from the iconic Tyne Bridge, right out towards the coast in South Shields.
Since 1981 the world’s biggest half marathon has welcomed over one million people across the finish line in South Shields.
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 by our 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 line.
It’s been great to see so many of our clients out training hard for one of the biggest half marathons in the race calendar, we have been treating all those runner here at the Didsbury clinic, services including our sports massage, physiotherapy, podiatry and personal training have been great tool to keep everyone in top condition and hitting their training goals prior to the big race.
Good luck to everyone running on Sunday from all the team at G4 Didsbury.
