2009 Great North Run, South Shields

2009 BUPA Great North Run

As each year passes, the Great North Run to South Shields gets larger and larger. This year’s events had 54000 runners, and the facilities to support the run take almost two weeks to build on The Leas. Everything from hospitality tents, to feeding stations, meet the family areas, massage tents, medical tents, a charity village, television studios, you name it and it will be there. They literally build a small new town on our cliff tops.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 450mm lens, 1/350 second, f8, iso 200
