Hi, I'm Ian and I'm the founder of Walk Run Cycle.

Thanks so much for being like me and wanting to really explore a city and see all those best bits and hidden gems that usually only the locals know about. 

All the routes in our apps have been created by real people, on the ground, who know the city inside out.

We've walked, run or cycled up and down checking out every possible route for you - we don't just string together the 5 main sights and the shortest route between them. After all, where's the fun in that!

We take you down the prettiest, most interesting streets instead - which might be slightly longer, but a lot more pleasant!

If you're visiting Newcastle and want some key walks and routes to show you all the best sights, you've come to the right place. How about a few alternative walking routes to get you off the beaten track? Yep, we've got those too. Quite simply we have created the best selection of walks to show you the highlights and hidden gems of Newcastle.

Feeling energetic but don’t know where to run or where is best during daytime or night-time? Perhaps you are in the middle of a training plan for a marathon next year! Well you’ll love our simple selection of 1.5km, 5km, 7km, 10km and half marathon run routes in Newcastle.

If it' s a lovely sunny day you can really see so much more on the back of a bike. We have created some great cycle routes, perfect for the whole family (or the keen cyclist) to see the best parts of Newcastle and the surrounding area. You will also find some bike routes through the lesser known areas such as Jesmond and the Ouseburn Valley as well as circular routes out to the Angel of the North! And always on the greenest, most pleasant bike paths or quietest roads wherever possible.

So I really hope you enjoy discovering Newcastle as much as we all did. And remember to send us your photos or leave comments on individual routes, we look at them all!
