We are very proud that we have 5 TOFS allocated and a number of own place runners training hard for the Great North Run in Newcastle this year, all in aid of TOFS. Our sincere thanks to Janet Wills, Laura Hammond, Clare Perez, Emma Hardman, Samantha Ewart, Dave Larby and Liam Kenyon.
Join us to cheer on our amazing running heroes on Sunday 10th September. No experience necessary, just lots of enthusiasm, and together we can make the TOFS stand a noisy spectacle.
Where to find us
We plan to be very close to Heworth Interchange Metro Station (which also has a large car park – bear in mind road closures).
When you arrive at Heworth Interchange, face the A184 (running route). We will be on the opposite side to the metro station (see map). Look out for our banners and flags!

10:37 Visually Impaired
11:00 Elite Men & MASSES
Bear in mind that the metro stations will be busy on race day.
The nearest station to the finish line is South Shields. The route to the finish line is clearly signed and around a 20 minute walk.
Phone signal is very poor due to the masses, so a well planned meeting point is advised. Look out for the A-Z banners and stand by the first letter of the runners surname.
