South Shields 10



The South Shields 10 Mile Race celebrates it’s third race along the beautiful coastal views of South Shields on Sunday 5th August.

The hugely popular South Shields 10 is a fantastic challenge on multi terrain. The 10 mile scenic course takes in the incredible coastal views on The Leas. The race is a perfect challenge for all runners and will serve as an ideal training race before the famous Great North Run in September.

All runners will receive a South Shields 10 finisher’s medal and awards will be given to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place including veteran categories (40, 50, 60, 70+)
