10k Road Race

The North Tyneside 10k Road Race 2018 is now on sale here.

As ever, the popular run takes place on Easter Sunday - 1st April.

Last year's race was an early sell-out so please book your place soon to avoid disappointment. 

The race starts at The Parks Sports Centre in North Shields before taking in the Fish Quay, River Tyne, Tynemouth Priory and a stretch of coastline before finishing at St. Mary's Lighthouse in Whitley Bay.

Organised by North Tyneside Council with support from Start Fitness and Northumbria Spring Water, the 6.2 mile event features chip timing, results by SMS, video clips and a goody bag with souvenir t-shirt.

Last year's race was won by Tadele Geremew in a time of 33 minutes and 04 seconds.

The first female runner over the line was Alison Dargie in a time of 38 minutes and 09 seconds.

The course record still stands at 30m 20s, set by Mongolian athlete Serod Batocir in 2011.
