Quayside 5k 2018

Gateshead Harriers & AC are proud to announce the Quayside 5k Road Race event on Wed 15th August 2018 sponsored by:

Academy Of Fitness Training Newcastle

The race route is out and back on a very flat and fast course along the River Tyne from the Newcastle side of the Millennium Bridge to Newcastle Business Park, under the famous Tyne Bridge and returning to cross the iconic Gateshead Millennium Bridge to finish in Baltic Square.

This year’s event will be bigger and better….with even more PBs and prize money.

And yes the rumours are true – there will be 2 races this year due to high demand….. and safety; so look forward to another safety video 😉

*The split is to avoid 2-way runner traffic at a jetty chicane on the course*
