Iconic Blaydon Races

Click here to discover the history of the iconic Blaydon Race

Thousands of Geordie’s took part in Geordieland’s 2nd most iconic road race this week as the famous road race yet again took place on the 9th of June.

Naturally, this long running and historic race was started in the heart of the Geordie City of Newcastle Upon Tyne, before following the road along Scotswood Road, crossing the River Tyne via Scotswood Bridge, before finishing in playing fields near Blaydon town centre.

Many thousands of keen Geordie runners, represented local running clubs along with others from the local community and elsewhere.

The local charity Smile for life, sponsored this years iconic Blaydon Races.

A recent post on Facebook, about the sale of a painting which features a Tyneside sand dancer and his dog, on little haven beach in view of the iconic Groyne lighthouse in South Shields, has got us thinking about adding a new feature to our Geordie art & culture section.

The new section will feature paintings and/or links to paintings by local artists, whether they are for sale or not :).

Thanks for introducing us to your painting Julie Stubbs and hopefully you will soon add to our planned new section.

In the meantime if you are a local Geordie artist and would like to have your own painting featured in our planned new Geordie paintings section, please make contact and we will soon make it happen.

Watch this space for updates 🙂
