Bupa Great North Run 2014

Great North Run 2014Every year thousands of spectators, supporters and well-wishers line the streets of South Tyneside to encourage the runners on the last leg of their Great North Run journey. This warm welcome combined with the spectacular coastal views provide the perfect backdrop to celebrate crossing the finish line.

This year's run, which took place on Sunday 7 September, was the first half marathon in the world to reach its one millionth finish!

To mark this extraordinary milestone, a series of projects and exhibitions are on display in South Tyneside from 30 August.
