Event Cancellation for Great North Run

If you're local you can't fail to have noticed a few goings-on around the Town Moor the past few days. The organisers of the Great North Run are preparing for this year's event on September 12th. For one year only the run starts AND finishes in Newcastle, and the finish zone will be on the Town Moor.  As a result, our route will be impassable in places on September 11th, so regrettably we need to cancel.

We expect Leazes and Jesmond Dene parkruns to be very busy, so please consider volunteering to help them cope with the numbers. If you would normally run in Newcastle, maybe consider another run not too far away to spread the numbers out and to enjoy a new experience? There are 10 parkruns within 10 miles of Town Moor.  Our home page tells you of all the other local parkruns and how far away they are. 

If we don't see you on September 4th, we will be back to see your smiling faces on September 18th.
