Entries closed on 10th March 2020
The Run Northumberland Half Marathon started in 2011 and continues to be a major Half Marathon on the North East running calendar.
In 2020, we will be moving the event to a closed road course in the Tyne Valley. The route starts in Ovingham and goes through Wylam and crosses the Tyne and we are planning to finish on the Tyne Riverside Park in Low Prudhoe. This route mostly flat with a slight climb around 3-4 miles before the turning point.
You can login to your account/profile and check all the races you have entered and the entry status. Any queries please email email@example.com
You will recieve information and instructions by email approximately 3 days before the race. It is important that your email account is accessible to you and that you check for the email before the race.
Please be aware we do not post out race numbers, these are to be collected on the day from registration, we will provide safety pins.
RUN NATION will always endeavour the produce your results with Chip Timing.
Sometimes chips are not picked up for reasons outside our control (the chip didn't work or was covered up by clothing or was wet/damaged), in these cases we may have to refer to our video (GoPro) at the finish to manually identify runners. This allows us to guarantee a finish time
When the race is chip timed, your race/bib number will have a foam strip with the chip underneath - Do not remove or damage the foam or chip.
Your race number should be attached to your running top at all four corners and be visible throughout the race (including start and finish).
The race results/positions are always based on the GUN time NOT the chip time - this is standard across all official running events across the world. The sport has rules that are consistent and used in all countries/races that follow the World governing body rules.
The chip time is only used for personal use. The position the runners cross the finishing line is how ALL results are calculated.
WHERE RUNNERS DO NOT WEAR THEIR NUMBER CORRECTLY - THEY MAY NOT GET A TIME. PLEASE DISPLAY YOUR NUMBER ON THE FRONT OF YOUR RUNNING TOP AT ALL TIMES.

Where there are fewer than 5 runners finishing in an age category, we will merge 2 or more age categories, to make up at least 5 finishers to count for a prize.
The highest placed runner within the combined age groups will qualify for a prize.
If one of the runners claiming a 1st 2nd 3rd prize overall (male or female), then the next placed veteran will recieve the Age Group prize.
