Make sure that you arrive 15 minutes before the start to take part in the Big Fun Warm up. The event is not timed so don’t worry about rushing round. There will be signage and marshals along the route to cheer you on and make sure no-one goes the wrong way. Once you come through the finish line you will be greeted by our friendly MC and finish team who will give you a bottle of water, an event goody bag and your well deserved Big Fun Run medal. Remember your camera or phone and why not make your way to the Big Fun Run podium where you can take your picture along with anyone you’ve come with.
The course will take you around the Newcastle Town Moor. Located in the heart of Newcastle and less than five minutes away from the A167, the Town Moor provides the perfect combination of a quiet traffic free route which is also in the city centre.
When on the Town Moor you are only a 5-10 minute walk from the heart of the city which has a wide variety of restaurants, shops and entertainment. There are also excellent public transport links with the Haymarket Metro and bus station a 10 minute walk from the start line. Please note that the route may be subject to change.

Bring your own camera/phone to take photos on the day. If you would like photographs of you on the course, please ask family or friends to take some for you. Why not pose infront of the Big Fun Run Pyramid. And remember to smile!
