TBC - September 2019

The Great North Run is officially the world's biggest half marathon. If you join Team OCD-UK you’ll run alongside 57,000 other runners, cheered on by tens of thousands of supporters and enjoy a fantastic atmosphere and stunning sea views as you finish.

The Great North Run takes runners on a fantastic 13.1 mile route from Newcastle's city centre, over the iconic Tyne Bridge, where you might be lucky to catch a glimpse of the red arrows, then winding through Gateshead and crossing the finishing by the beautiful South Shields coastline, and all of it captured live on the BBC!
