Annual 10k run

BLYTH Running Club are hosting the annual Spirit of the Staithes 10km run this weekend.

It takes place on Sunday, starting at Blyth Quayside at 10am, with all finishers receiving a t-shirt.

Walkers and cyclists using the beach path are being made aware that the runners will be using the path from around 10.10am but hopefully they will not be too inconvenienced.
