Start Fitness Quayside 5k 2019 Pre-Event Info:
Gateshead Harriers & AC are proud to announce the Start Fitness Quayside 5k Road Race event on Wednesday 14th August 2019. 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 big prize money incentives.
There will be a Junior Quayside Run over approximately 3km added to the program this year along with two 5k races split by a sub-20min entry standard for the A-Race.
*The split is to avoid 2-way runner traffic at a jetty chicane on the course*
