Sunderland Marathon of the North Runners Crossing Wearmouth Bridge in Sunderland

The Marathon of The North is a brand new marathon to be held annually in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear. Sunderland City Council and the organisers of the Sunderland City 10K have scheduled ‘The Marathon Of The North’ to take place on Sunday 28th April 2013. You can see a short video of the Sunderland City 10K here…

The Marathon of the North course starts and finishes at the Stadium of Light on the north bank of the river Wear. After crossing the Wearmouth Bridge, the route follows the first few kilometres of the Sunderland City 10K course. The first half of the race course is on the south side of the river Wear it is predominantly flat with few noticeable gradients and includes a circuit of picturesque Barnes Park. At the halfway mark the route returns back across the Wearmouth Bridge and the last ten miles is run adjacent to the river Wear and Roker and Seaburn beaches.
