Sunderland City Runs 2020

Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th May

The first Sunderland city 10km was held in 2011 with just over 1500 taking part. 10 years later the Sunderland City Runs will welcome 5000 participants to the city streets in a celebration of running across a range of distances. You can choose the 10th anniversary 10k,  the stunning Half-Marathon, the Northern Spire 5k or the Big 3k. There is something for everyone. Come and join in one of the norths largest running events that races through the city and along the sea front, with two of its famous bridges providing a stunning backdrop to all 4 distances. No matter if you’re a first-timer or an experienced runner, the course and atmosphere are conducive to fast times as well as a lot of fun. See you on the start line!

Active Sunderland have challenged the city to STEP UP through to the summer of 2020, walking and running to encourage a more active lifestyle for us all. The Sunderland City Runs on May 9th and 10th 2020 will be the climax of the campaign and we are delighted that so many will be really helping to make Sunderland a city that runs. Millions of steps forward!

Step Up and help us celebrate 10 of the best!

She's only gone and won another race but this time it was slightly further than the Sunderland City 5k 😉

Superstar Aly Dixon is the World 50km Champion and in a new WR - 3:07.42.

This weekend she's after another WR and is raising money for St. Benedict's Hospice in the process. Aly will be trying to set the World Record for the fastest half marathon dressed as a superhero when she runs the Great North Run on Sunday.

Good Luck Aly!!

Sad news has reached us here at EOTN HQ as we recently found out that the Big Pink Dress ,Breast Cancer Now has been admitted to hospital.

Don’t fear, he is ok but we hope you’ll join us in saying a MASSIVE ‘Get Well Soon’ to our hero Colin Burgin-Plews

We’d love to see your photos with The Big Pink Dress in the comments below to show your amazing support for him and his recovery.
