Great North Run - 8th September 2019
Julia, your host at Lily's Cottage, is very excited (and slightly scared) to have secured a place in the Great North Run for the first time this year. Lily's Cottage is an ideal base for competitors as it offers beautiful challenging runs coupled with the peace and tranquility of Weardale. Hotel rates around the area go through the roof over this weekend so this is a good, economical alternative if you wish to make a weekend of it. Newcastle is less than an hour's drive away and there is the option of travelling in on the Metro to save trying to find a parking space in the city centre on this busy weekend.
