We had a number of runners at this years Blaydon race, a race which always takes place on the 9th June. To give you a little history of the event..
The Blaydon Race was formed in 1981, the brain child of Dr Jim Dewar. From 212 athletes in the first race to a 4700 sell out now, the race could be filled twice over. It follows the route taken by horse race goers in 1862 in the words of the Geordie folk song The Blaydon Races written by Geordie Ridley. The words are used as the basis for the whole race.
Paul Cook was first home for the club in 34:01 with Sue Phillips first lady. Full results can be found here
