Radio Lollipop Newcastle Rocks the Great North Run 2022
16 October 2022  

On September 11th 2022 Radio Lollipop Newcastle had 22 willing volunteers to run 13.1 miles from Newcastle City Centre to the finish line with the wonderful view of South Shields in front of them.  The greatest half marathon in the world takes place on our doorstep (even starting virtually outside our studio door) and after two long years the GNR “came home”.  The event was, sadly, overshadowed by the passing of Queen Elizabeth II and a very respectful silence was observed before the race.


Our runners all finished, logging some fantastic times but it was the personal challenge that they met with a real Radio Lollipop attitude.  A huge thank you to everyone who ran for us and here’s to 2023’s race.
