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.
5. At the finish
They've done it! Finishers in the 2004 Great North Run. Are you among them?
6. On the way to Shields
A chip off the old block, pictured in 2003. Does this bring back happy memories?
7. Watching the action
A great reception for the runners in the 2004 crowd.
8. An ace of a performance
As well as the famous characters, there's lots of people who really enter into the spirit of the occasion including these two finishers from 2016.
