The World famous Blaydon Race will once again be “gannin alang the Scotswood Road” on the 9th June 2022 after a 2 year absence. As the race was full for 2020 all of those entries will be carried over to 2022. There are no refunds available for the event or deferrals to another event or year. Name changes are possible until 31/1/2022 via the Results Base website.
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 the whole distance.
All finishers will receive a t-shirt, beer, crisps, sandwich and a drink.
Cash for Kids is a local charity, and it is their mission to support local children who are disabled, disadvantaged, sick, or suffering from abuse or neglect, from the ages of 0-18.
All the funds for the charity are raised locally, and redistributed locally, to individuals, families and other charities dedicated to improving the lives of young people. We are proud to operate an 80% contribution across the UK, with clear visibility on where the money goes and who it is helping. However, at Metro Radio Cash For Kids, our last audit showed that our contribution was much higher, with at least 90 pence in every pound donated going directly to the children we help and support.
This year, we hope to support lots more children in the region. Year on year, the need for support for children across the North East is growing. As such, the Cash For Kids targets are increasing.
This year, it is our aim to raise over £2.5 million to help local children. Without the support of the public, local businesses, donations and grants from trusts, it would be impossible for us to meet this target and continue our life altering work. With the help and support of The Blaydon Race we can make a difference the lives of local children.
