Race Date: 8 September 2019
Distance: 13.1 Miles
Despite the distance away the Great North Run is always a well attended race in the Striders Calendar. A classic half marathon starting in Newcastle City Centre and finishing on the sea front in South Shields. It is a notoriously ‘bumpy’ half marathon.
24 Steel City Striders made the trip to the North East. Well done to everyone. Special shout out to Andy Weir who completed the race on the back of a self planned 113 mile ‘Great North Ultra’. You can read Andy’s report on his run here: https://www.steelcitystriders.co.uk/?p=30648&preview=true
The striders were in prestigeous company with the winner being Mo Farah in 59:07
First woman was Brigid Kosgei in 1:04:28
