I have never done the great north run before and since Im taking the family with me to watch we couldnt afford to stay over and decided to drive from Manchester.
My question is 'is there any chance of getting parking in south shields?'. Has anyone driven to the run and if so what's the traffic like in the morning? would it be better to park in North Shields and get the ferry over? I have a young daughter so after the run I would like to just get her in the car as opposed to waiting in a endless queue for the MET back to Newcastle?
