Created by Liam Turnbull, Modified on Thu, 22 Feb 2024 at 02:08 PM by Liam Turnbull

Information Point: 

There will be an information point open on the day of the event for last minute queries. The team can also issue replacement race numbers/timing chips to anyone who needs one. 

This is where race numbers can be collected, if a runner has chosen to collect their race number, instead of having it posted out. 

We will be in our Great Run branded marquee in front of the Law Courts on Newcastle Quayside. Our exact opening hours are still be to confirmed. 


Runners will be able to leave their baggage free of charge.

There will be a baggage label attached to the race number, which can be torn off and attached to the bag before depositing it there. 

The exact location for this is still to be confirmed.

Water provision

Bottled water will be provided in the finishers bag which you will receive when you cross the finish line.


Toilets will be provided for runners and spectators near the start area.
