2022 Great North Run

Taking place on Sunday 11th September, the Great North Run is one of the biggest sporting events to descend on the North East every year. The world's biggest half marathon celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2021 and whether you’re joining the thousands of other runners crossing the start line or cheering them along from the side, you’re bound to have a fantastic day out.

After a temporary change in 2021, the run will revert back to its original route next year and we can't wait! Kicking off in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne, runners will tackle the 13.1 mile course all the way through Gateshead towards the picturesque South Shields coast. For more information, you can visit the Great North Run website and start planning your day.

Don’t miss out and get booking your accommodation at Whitley Bay Holiday Park, perfectly situated with excellent transport links to both Newcastle and South Shields.

Choose from a range of cosy caravans and lodges, just steps away from the beach. Whether you opt for a short break or a longer holiday, you’ll be kept entertained by our fantastic on park facilities and a multitude of local attractions nearby.
