The original plans for this race have been drastically changed due the cancellation of Redcar Sprint Triathlon, so there is no longer a road closure available.
So there is a new start time -10 am (we no longer need to work around the Tri) and a new course using essentially the last 5 Miles of the Mermaid 10k (ie Start and Finish on the Coast Road path)
Final route details will appear hear once the 5 Mile route has been officially measured and certified and can be viewed via this link.
The Redcar Penguins 5 Mile races will start outside and finish inside Zetland Park. It will consist of two laps from Zetland Park to the Penguins and back on roads that are closed to traffic.
The race will start at 1pm utilising the road closures in place for the cyclling element of Redcar Sprint Triathlon event held on the morning of the race. The last cyclist is expected to finish by 12 noon, so if you arrive before this then please take care not to step in front a competitor. Also as the swim element is in the open sea, it is possible that weather conditions could cause a delay, which could have a knock on effect on the start time of our race. However we believe we have allowed more than enough time under normal circumstances, for the whole triathlon to be completed before we start.
Medal and goody bag to all finishers.
