Every year 6,000 young runners pound the pavements at the UK’s biggest and most popular children’s running event on the Newcastle Gateshead Quayside. Budding athletes, school friends and families will run across the famous Great North CityGames track as part of their 1.5km and 4km courses, for ages 3-8 and 9-16 years respectively.

The Junior and Mini courses both start on the Newcastle side of the River and take the young runners across to Gateshead via the Swing Bridge.

The Juniors have a slightly extended version that loops along the river, but both the Juniors and the Minis will cross back across the Gateshead Millennium Bridge towards the finish line on the Newcastle side.

If you were successful in securing a place at this year's Junior & Mini GNR and you would like to support us then please get in touch with our Fundraising Team. Everyone who runs for the North East Autism Society will receive a runner’s pack including a NEAS T shirt/running vest and fundraising and training tips prior to the event.
