Great Run Company establish new national HQ in landmark Tyne Bridge House development

We are pleased to announce that the UK’s leading provider of mass participation sporting events, Great Run Company, will move into our Grade A office development on Gateshead Quayside, directly adjacent to the Tyne Bridge. 

Situated on Bottle Bank overlooking the River Tyne, the landmark 5,259 sq ft development will deliver premium, Grade A office space. The development comprises three floors of workspace, is clad in Corten steel with glazed facades, and features a rooftop terrace.


Adderstone Founder CEO Ian Baggett with Sir Brendan Foster, Founder and Chairman of the Great Run Company, and Gary Wright, Great Run Company, Chief Operating Officer.


Ian Baggett, Founder CEO of Adderstone, said: “We always knew this development would be perfect for a high-profile tenant and you don’t get much higher profile than the Great Run Company.

I remember watching my dad do the first run in 1981 and I’ve done it several times since.  It’s an epic event and me and my team feel honoured to now be part of the Great North Run story. Brendan is a true local hero and an inspiration.”


Gary Wright, Chief Operating Officer of the Great Run Company commented: “Like many businesses, we are transitioning to flexi working and as we were coming to the end of our existing lease, the move to Tyne Bridge House provided us with the perfect space to accommodate the new working routines of colleagues based in the North East, as well as those visiting from other offices around the UK.

“This central location will give us much more scope to encourage staff to travel to work sustainably, making use of local transport links and cycle lanes.

“We also envisage the property having a major role to play on run day, with the spectacular roof terrace providing a perfect viewing gallery from which to carry out interviews and host TV cameras.”
