This September, the Great North Run will be the first event of its kind in the world to reach its millionth finish, ahead of London, New York and Berlin. A celebration is in order!

We’re really excited to announce a grant of over £400,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to support an ambitious programme of special events and exhibitions which will explore and celebrate the North East's sporting and industrial heritage.

Filming on Tracer came to a close at the very end of April, during a week of intense weather: amazing sunrises - at the coast and on the roof of The Sage, stormy skies, hail and sparkling light after massive downpours. Ideal for filming - there is a lot of drama in this North Eastern weather and these big, expansive skies.

Blog: Dawn call
The next morning we're back out before daybreak, the intention is to film into dawn – which a little later fills the skies with pink and red; worth getting up for.

We meet Craig from Apeuro Freerunning at 6am on one of the labyrinthine roads of Fellgate Estate to film him running a Parkour line across a series of garages.
