Work begins to attach huge Great North Run sign to the Tyne Bridge

Work begins to attach huge Great North Run sign to the Tyne Bridge
Jul 23, 2014 11:35 By Michael Brown


The Great North Run sign being erected on the Tyne Bridge

Workmen have started attaching a huge Great North Run sign to the Tyne Bridge, with excitement building ahead of the run.

With just 47 days to go before 56,000 runners pound the 13.1 miles from Newcastle to South Shields - and 44 until this year’s spectacular opening ceremony - the Tyneside landmark is once more set to play it’s part.

Commissioned by Nova, organisers of the run, the Bupa Great North Run sign – which was first put up last August – is made from aluminum and is powder-coated in blue. And at night it is lit up with white LED lights.

And as the half marathon becomes the first mass participation run to reach one million finishers the sign and bridge will no doubt play a major role in the Great North Run Million Opening Ceremony on September 4.
