About

Our popular TOMMY RUN returns in 2024 on the 3rd November which is the week before Memorial Sunday.

The course is along the beautiful sea front at Seaham on a mixture of paths, promenade, and some trail paths. The event will start at the Tommy War Memorial statue of a First World War soldier by artist Ray Lonsdale, displayed close to Seaham war memorial, on Terrace Green by the seafront in Seaham, County Durham.

It depicts the soldier, wearing boots, puttees, great coat and a tin hat, sitting on an ammunition box, with downcast eyes, holding the barrel of his grounded rifle in his right hand. It is officially named 1101 (or Eleven-O-One), referring to the first minute of peace as the armistice came into force at 11am on 11 November 1918, but is more popularly known as Tommy, referring to the archetypal private soldier, Tommy Atkins.

Start time: 9:30am
