Hi all, im doing the Great North Run in September and I've never done it before. I know its a way off but I like to plan ahead so I can book trains and hotel.
My plan is to go up day before and come back on the day afterwards on the train. Question is where is best to stay. Ive been on the website and seems theres a transfer from finish to start or city centre. Ill have a few family members there too, so is it best to say in centre, race start from near centre then just transfer back to centre after the race? Id probably book the train back to Leeds for anytime around 6pm, this gives me ample time after the race doesn't it?
Ive heard accommodation is a mare and just done a quick search on usual chain hotels and says nothing available, blimey, so soon!!
Any experienced great north runners I'd love some advice, thanks.
