It’s that time of year again! On Sunday 10th September, more than 50,000 runners from 130 countries will descend upon the streets of the North East to tackle the world’s favourite half marathon, the Simplyhealth Great North Run, 2017.
This famous event is a great source of pride for the region. And what’s not to love? Crowds of jubilant Geordies lining the streets, the iconic crossing of the Tyne Bridge, Sir Mo! It’s a fantastic day made even better by every person who helps make it happen; from the organisers, to the participants, to the spectators. And that’s something worth celebrating!
Whatever role you will play on the day, we think everyone involved will have earned themselves a drink by the time the last runner has crossed the finish line. With that in mind we have put together a list of pubs and bars on and around the 13.1 mile stretch from Newcastle to South Shields, so no matter where you are on the route you can find somewhere to soak up the post-race atmosphere.
Best of luck to everyone taking part from all of us here at Useyourlocal!
