Let’s enjoy a flavour of what we can expect with a look back on great South Shields scenes from years gone by.
We have got crowd scenes, we have got finishers and we have got fancy dress runners enjoying a great time.
Why not re-live the fun and perhaps you will spot someone you know as well.

2. Three amigos
Hats off to these three who completed the run in 2006.
3. Mo meets the fans
The first three finishers in the 2015 Great North Run, including Mo Farah, were pictured with the crowds near the finish line. Can you spot someone you know?

4. Musical memories
Does this 2006 scene strike a chord?
