The Blaydon Race was formed in 1981, the brain child of Dr Jim Dewar. From 212 athletes in the first race to a 4700 sell out now, the race could be filled twice over. It follows the route taken by horse race goers in 1862 in the words of the Geordie folk song The Blaydon Races written by Geordie Ridley. The words are used as the basis for the whole race.

After Dr Dewars death just days after the race in 2004 Bob Houston took on the role of race director for a number of years. Lynn Craig the current Club Chairwoman took the race on and it has gone from strength to strength in the past 8 years. Due to her husband retiring Lynn has now passed the race on to Daniel Flint who hopes to confirm the Race as one of the best Club events in the Country.

With an extensive prize list most of the regions top athletes compete in the race, all chasing the prize for the first Geordie.
