Youngsters on their marks for beach races

Blyth Running Club is holding some junior races for children under the age of 15.

The races will take place on Blyth beach on Saturday, May 11, with the first run off at 10.15am.

The categories and distances will be – Under 6s, 200metres; U9s, 400m; U11s, 800m; U13s, 1200m; and U15s, one mile.

There will be separate races for both boys and girls in each category, with trophies for the first placed runners in each race while all runners will receive a medal.

All ages will be as on the day of the races.

It is hoped that as many children as possible will turn up and they just need to turn up at the beach car park to register and receive their numbers before the start of the race. There will be a charge of £2 to enter.
