Stephen Sullivan, operations manager at The New Sundial said: “The Great North Run is incredible for the local economy and one of our favourite days of the years. We’ve pulled in two incredible bands to entertain the crowds at the finish line.
"The day is not without its challenges of which we are putting every in place to combat it and make sure the day runs smoothly.
"We will be opening all our bars indoor and out and putting surplus staff in throughout the day. Internet connection is notoriously bad due to the sheer number of people, media and infrastructure, as a result our card payment machines struggle at peak on the day and that is why we’re encouraging people to pay cash on the day.”
Shannon Kinghorn, manager at The New Sundial added: “we’re really excited for Great North Run Day it’s always one of the best days of the year. We hope everyone has an amazing day but remind people to drink responsibly, stay hydrated and if the weather keeps up wear sunscreen!”Crowds are expected to fill up early at the pub as they await their loved ones crossing the line and joining them. The bar will be open from 11am on the day and food will be served until 4pm.
