Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne, the 13.1 mile route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne where thousands of people will cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge, where if you're lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead.
From there, runners will travel through Gateshead while being entertained by many bands on the run. The route, lined by thousands of supporters, leads runners to South Shields – at the top of Prince Edward Road the view of the sea is one of the most welcoming sights along the whole course.
At just over a mile to go, the crowds get louder as runners make their way down the final straight towards the finish gantry.
