Annual full and half marathon on Newcastle Town Moor. ARC permit and course measurement certificate provided.
For those who don't mind multi-lap runs, this will be the 12th running of Newcastle upon Tyne’s marathon over a traffic-free 7 lap course (or half of that for a half marathon) on good footpaths through and around its historic Exhibition Park and Town Moor. Road shoes are perfect for this event.
There will be portable toilets available outside the Boathouse headquarters and bags may be left in the NEMC tent at your own risk. There is a feed station supplying water, juice and sweets on each lap. You are welcome to bring your own labelled food and drinks to leave at the station. There is a medal, crisps and chocolate for all finishers. The event will be chip timed with trophies for first male and female winners. Vets age group winners receive Start Fitness vouchers on request.
6 hour limit. (If you want to take longer, let us know and we'll give you an early start)
Marathon start is 09:30 and the half is at 10:30
