After the successful return of The South Shields 10 Mile Race in 2021, we will return in 2022 with our fantastic course along the beautiful coast of South Shields. The race has been a sell-out every year & we encourage early registration to guarantee your place.
Starting at Souter Lighthouse, the course heads North along the beautiful South Shields coastline and completing 2 laps of the Leas before returning back to the Lighthouse.
