The covid social distancing measures are expected to disappear on 19th July. However, we understand that some runners will remain nervous about being too close to other runners at the start. We have enough room at the start for runners to stretch back round Zetland Park - so if a runner feels "closed in" they can easily move towards the back of the assembled field at the start. To further facilitate this, we will be awarding prizes based on chip times and not gun times, so that anyone starting towards the rear is not disadvantaged!
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. If successful this may become an annual event.
The race will start at 1pm utilising the road closures in place for the cyclling element of Redcar Sprint Triathlon event (a European Qualifier) 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.
