A well organised event with a carnival atmosphere. A tough course so don't expect a personal best. Mike C

Brilliant run! Volunteers were brilliant x Jess A

Lovely friendly atmosphere, fab Seeing all the different buildings and Newcastle history and fairly flat route. Fiona J

This run is challenging, but manageable... the crowds and atmosphere make this an occasion. For 70 minutes I feel like an athlete! People cheer you on using your name (it’s written on your race number). If you Park Run this is a next-level event. It is mostly flat with great views of the Tyne and friendly support all around. Organisation is always sleek. The goodies are top quality. Catherine K

Fantastic organisation and really enjoyable event. Thank you ! Andrea S
