Morpeth to Newcastle - M2N

The Morpeth to Newcastle road race was one of the oldest and longest running road races in the world. Officially it began in 1904 and came to an end in 2004 due to road traffic management issues, essentially an old traditional race could no longer find its way along its historic route due to modernisation. We would like to bring this race back. Many of the worlds greatest runners have graced this event, many of whom were Olympians, World record holders and simply legends. People who whether we know it or not have affected many of us today. Runners who blazed a trail through an era which we will never see again and runners who we should never forget. The Morpeth should not be consigned to the history books and instead should be celebrated and enjoyed for generations to come. Please support it and become a friend of the Morpeth to Newcastle road race.

History

The North East boasts a road race heritage the envy of Britain. Thousands of world-class athletes, dedicated club runners and charity champions pound our streets every year in the pursuit of personal glory. From famous half marathons to celebrated 10k events, we are home to many of the most exciting events in the country. But one race started it all. Cemented our reputation. Showed we were serious. The Morpeth To Newcastle Road Race resonates with generations of runners. And for a century it held a special place in the hearts of the North East’s sporting public. Fusing time-honoured tradition with world-class talent, the Morpeth - as locals know it - was the oldest road running event in England. First run in 1904, it covered 13.6 miles (21/9km) of public roads from Morpeth to Newcastle. In 1983 organisers tweaked the route to 14.1 miles (22.7km) and in 2002 a standardised half marathon distance was run. But months after the centenary event was completed it was announced the Morpeth’s future was in doubt. Runners will line the historic route. And this time cyclists can join in the fun. Follow in the footsteps of five-time winners Jim Alder and Mike McLeod. And evoke memories of seven-times winner Dunky Wright as you weave your way through the streets of Northumberland, North Tyneside and Newcastle
