Gannin along the Scotswood Road on the 9th of June – what could be better fun than that? Throw in the fact that this race forms part of the Ponteland Runners Club Championship and is only 5.7 miles in length and you have a race I hope many of us want to enter. Entry is always oversubscribed and if you want to have a go then here follows a reminder on how to do it:
Online entry for the Blaydon Race will open next Monday (February 4th). Online entry will be in four batches which will open at 2pm, 4pm, 6pm and 8pm with 500 entries in each batch. These will fill. You will also be able to download the postal form on Monday. In 2012, the 2000 limit for postal entries was reached in 3 days.
Visit the race website at: http://www.blaydonrace.co.uk/pages/entry.html for more details.
In short, if you want to enter get in there as quick as you can a week today and I’ll see you on the start line.
