The ever popular Blyth Valley 10k has new sponsors this year, and Blyth Running Club are extremely grateful to the Port Of Blyth for ensuring that the race will continue.

The 14th running of the Blyth Valley 10k, now renamed the Port of Blyth 10K will take place on Sunday, April 8 at 10am. The race is run from Blyth Quayside to Seaton Sluice and back, along public footpaths and cycle ways.

Walkers and cyclists using the beach path should be aware that the runners will be running along the path from about 10:10am but hopefully they will not be too inconvenienced.

With nearly 550 finishers last year, the Club have had to introduce a limit to the number of entries that can be accepted and this is 650. The closing date for entries is Monday, April 2, although last year the race was full two weeks before the closing date, and this year’s looks like being just as popular, so anybody interested should get their entries in as soon as possible.

The event organiser can be contacted at bv10@blythrunningclub.org.uk and online entries are at www.runbritain.com

Blyth is a well established club and is always on the look-out for new members of all abilities.

Club Secretary, Ralph Dickinson, said: “We have a variety of sessions available from the complete beginner up to seasoned runners! We are a very friendly approachable club and would love to see you at any of our sessions. Joining a club like this keeps you fit, you get to socialise and run with friends, which is great.We want people of all abilities to come along and join us.”
