FEB 3rd - 6am Affiliated runners entry (UK athletics number required)

FEB 4th - 6am Affiliated / Unaffiliated runners entry

 

Welcome to the 2014 Blaydon race online entry page. Please take some time to read this important information and make sure you make the correct choices for the event. Please be aware there is an option to be affiliated (club runner), unaffiliated (non club runner), THE ME AND WOR LASS TROPHY (please select this option if you are competing with your partner).
 
The race this year will be run on Monday, 9th June with an expected 7.15pm start.
 
In 2014 we will be finishing at the Shibdon Playing fields on Shibdon Road, a bit further on from the shopping centre.  The overall distance is 5.7miles from Balmbra’s in Newcastle City Centre, along Collingwood Street and Scotswood Road past Armstrong’s factory and over the Scotswood Bridge to finish in the playing fields on Shibdon Road. There’ll be Music and dance at the start, along the course and at the finish.
 
We emphasise that the Blaydon Race is a serious road race run under UK Athletics rules and not a sponsored walk: we will not accept entries from people who intend to walk.
 
All finishers will receive a commemorative certificate, tee-shirt, souvenir programme, local beer, crisps, sandwich and soft drink. Many will receive spot prizes. Results will be on Race Timings Systems website (www.racetimingsystems.net), and also on this website. Runners will receive an SMS text message with their race time immediately after crossing the finish line (if mobile details are supplied at the point of entry).

Please check the prize list link below and make sure during the online entry process you enter the required information to make sure you are factored into these prize lists. **PLEASE MAKE SURE THE PERSONNEL INFORMATION YOU ENTER IS ACCURATE TO AVOID PRIZE DISSAPOINTMENT**

Entry for 2014
 
This year entries will be ONLINE ONLY.
 
Race entry fee will be £22. Members of running clubs affiliated to UK Athletics will benefit from a discount of £2.00 as per UKA rules (you will be asked to state your club name during the entry process and checks will be made with the relevant clubs to ensure you are affiliated as declared).
 
The race limit is 4000 entries. Once 4000 entries have been received we cannot accept any more and the online system will close. The limit, set in consultation with police and the local authorities, applies to the number of entries, not the number of runners. We are not permitted to allocate extra places when people drop out before the race. In 2013, the 4000 limit was reached in 2 days.
 
A limited number of entries will be available from 6AM on 3rd February for runners affiliated to England Athletics only (club runners only). Entries will remain open until midnight or until the limit is reached (affiliation status will be checked with the relevant clubs, those who incorrectly declare that they are affiliated will be removed from the race). Entries will re-open at 6AM on 4th February to all runners and will be closed once the limit has been reached. We anticipate that online entries will be fully taken by the end of the general opening day - 4th February 2014.
 
Race Pack Collection
 
For successful entrants, race details, instructions, and numbers will be available for collection from Start Fitness in Grainger Street, Newcastle, between 26th April and 17th May. Those not collected by 17th May will be posted.
 
Detailed race instructions will be included in your entry pack for all accepted entrants with their race numbers. There are often important changes to the previous year’s instructions so you should read them carefully.
