Newcastle 10k - RunThrough Top Flight Races

Newcastle 10k


This is an extremely fast, flat course that boasts real PB potential. The race will be split into 2 waves with the Elite Race starting at 9:00am. It’s a 2-lap 5km out-back circuit with a lot of straight line running and a sweeping turn at half way. The course is protected from the elements on both sides by a tree-line and buildings.
