New Marske Harriers has been organising road races for over 30 years. We have tried to always be ahead of the curve introducing new innovations whilst holding to the principle of providing races for club runners and providing value for money rather than being driven by the profit motive. Any profits are used to promote the sport of athletics and running within the borough of Redcar & Cleveland and supporting causes that enhance the environment for runners.

Redcar Penguins 5 Mile Road Race
25th July 2021
This races replaces the Locke Park Pie & Peas 5 Mile for 2021 (though it may return in 2022).
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.
Update (4th March)
We reluctantly took the decision to cancel all our races for 2021 up to and including the Autumn 5k in September. This was mainly due to the uncertainties presented by Covid and difficulties in finding suitable dates, as we had to keep pushing back the start of our racing year. Also, we feel that the safety of runners and the general public would be compromised: as a by-product of the Covid situation many more people are walking their dogs and kids (including pushchairs) on our usual courses either on the “pink path” or in Locke Park – the resulting congestion increases the risk of collisions and conflicts.
This also includes the new Zetland half/full Marathon due to be held on 18th April 2021 – the new date for this is Sunday 5th June 2022.
Those people that have entries for these races including those deferred from last year, will automatically have their entries deferred to 2022, with the option a refund if should they request one.
This leaves the calendar clear to have different races at different venues as the easing of Covid restriction allow.
Note: General information updates that are emailed to all entrants will also be posted here
We are also planning to organise the Fox Rush 3km Time Trial on Friday 7th May, 7pm as a one off event, originally scheduled as a series back in October 2020.

Important news regarding Redcar Running Festival
Due to non covid related reason the date has been changed to 10th October 2021.
Again, those people that have entries for these races including those deferred from last year, who are unable to make the new date, can request that their entry to be deferred to 2022 or refunded.
Also due to redevelopment work in the Majuba Road area, the start and finish will need to be relocated, although the basic half marathon course will be the planned 2 laps of the out & back Majuba Road to Marske Coast Road, and the shorter races fitting inside this footprint. Further details to follow.
