Hello Sheena. Thank you for contacting the club. The river run is open to club & non club runners. We are in the process of obtaining the necessary permissions in order to stage the run event, which should be not too far away from completion. Please just keep an eye on the website tab heading on the front page for the entry form. The form might also be placed on the Run Britain website too (TBC). We look forward to you seeing you & fellow Blaydon Harriers on Wednesday 13th June. Regards, Graham Bell Men’s Captain.

Hello Sheena, Thank you for contacting the club. Run Britain & Sports soft entries went live last night – I will check this with our admin team and get back you. Best Regards, Graham Bell (Men’s Captain).

Graham Bell

Hello Sheena. The admin team have checked the Sports Soft website and you can ‘enter & pay on line’. Just follow the instructions. You may have to set up your own personal account to do this, but it is straightforward to do so. Viewing the ‘entries box’ you can see a couple of people have signed up, so this does appear to be working okay. The same applies to Run Britain. Otherwise, you can still enter via our postal system directly from the club’s website, with a hard paper copy, enclose a cheque and pop both into the post. As a last resort, you can enter on the day, but with all ‘late entries’ you would incur a supplemental charge to your entry fee. I hope this answers your query. Regards, Graham.

Hello Jim. The club has been notified that pedestrians now have access over the bridge, so no issues to get finishing runners safely across the bridge and back to the activity centre. Best Regards, Graham Bell, Men’s Captain.

Hi
Enjoyed last night’s event-first race in years.However I was wondering why I was down as being in the 50 year old category rather than 55?

Graham Bell

Hello David. Thank you for getting in touch. we will amend the results sheet. Thank you for letting us know. Best Regards, Graham Bell (Men’s Captain).

Graham Bell

Hello David, The results sheet has been amended on the pdf document. This has been forwarded on to sports soft as an updated sheet (will take a day or so to have that sheet publicised). Regards, Graham.
