Autumn Coast Road Race - update - sent to entrants 3rd August 8.05pm

 

Hi Everyone
 

I am writing to let you know that Autumn Coast Road 5k (2nd September) will go ahead assuming that there is no deterioration to current Covid-19 levels.

In order to satisfy RunBritain Guidance and the Local Authority we have made several changes:

  • Distance is now 3km (Certified Course) instead of 5km
  • Time Trial Format ie we will start runners at 10 second intervals starting with fastest runner, finishing with the slowest to minimise overtaking.
  • Event will start at 7pm (not 7:15)
  • There will be no prizes, however all runners will receive a voucher for a post race drink at Redcar Rugby Club – there is a large outdoor area with well spaced picnic benches
  • The Maximum number of runners will be 120

I have attached some more detailed information – which will be further updated in due course. Please read this and if you decide that the new format in not to your liking then please let me know by replying to this email and I will refund your entry. This will allow your place to be made availablr to others.


Cheers

Redcar Running Festival 2020- Cancelled - sent to entrants on 31st July 5.15pm

 

Hi Everyone
 

Despite our best efforts to make sure the 2020 Redcar Running Festival would go ahead; we have reluctantly had to cancel the event.

When we put the date back by a month it was to buy time before we had to make significant financial commitments.  Now that month has passed and risks surrounding making those commitments have not improved. Indeed, as you will be aware, in some parts of the country the situation has got worse.

So what happens now?

We will automatically defer your entry to next year’s event on Sunday 3rd October 2021 – this will guarantee you place at the price you have already paid – these prices will not be available for 2021.

When entries for 2021 open you will automatically appear on the entry list and you will be sent a confirmation email.

If you would prefer a refund then please reply to this email and I will refund you via the EntryCentral system. The refund will be the amount that you paid less the EntryCentral processing fees which we cannot recover (4% or 50p min)

In association with RunClusive we set up a Virtual Redcar Run Fest, you can enter using the links below. Please note that there is no connection between these virtual events and the actual Redcar Running Festival.

Redcar Virtual 5K: https://www.runclusive.com/events/redcar-virtual-5k/

Redcar Virtual 10K: https://www.runclusive.com/events/redcar-virtual-10k/

Redcar Virtual Half Marathon: https://www.runclusive.com/events/redcar-virtual-half-marathon/

Redcar Virtual Marathon: https://www.runclusive.com/events/redcar-virtual-marathon/

As part of the attempt to go ahead this year we changed the half marathon course to a two lap one. We realised that the two laps could be easily doubled to provide an easily managed marathon course. So, with that in mind we are planning a Redcar Zetland Full and Half Marathon on Sunday 18th April 2021 – Covid-19 restrictions permitting of course.

So two dates to put in your 2021 diary are:

Sunday 18th April – Redcar Zetland Full and Half Marathon.

Sunday 3rd October – Redcar Running Festival

Everone Active 10k- Race Cancellation Info - Email sent 3:00pm 1st May

 

Hi Everyone
 
I hope you are keeping fit and free of Covid-19.
 
You are receiving this email because you had entered the race or you had signed up to the waiting list.
 
Unfortunately, the latest update from England Athletics means that, as expected, we have to cancel this race.
 
For those on the waiting list there is nothing to do as it will be scrubbed.
 
Those that entered will automatically be deferred to the 2021 race, and no further action is required unless you wish to have a refund, in which case you will need to reply to this email to request a refund.
 
The refund amount will be the total entry fee paid less the EntryCentral processing charge included in that fee, which we can’t recover. ie £12 for EA registered or £14.88 for unregistered.
 
I strongly suspect that the 5k race on 15th July will have to be cancelled also - but I will await further updates. 
 
My gut feeling is it that we may not be able to hold any races until there is population wide vaccination available ie beyond the end of 2020.
 
Stay safe
 
Cheers

Redcar Running Festival - Covid 19 Update - sent to entrants on 24th June 9pm

 

Hi Everyone
 
You are receiving this email because you have entered one of the 2020 Redcar Running Festival events.

In an attempt to ensure the 2020 Redcar Running Festival will go ahead we have made some changes.

We have changed the date to 25th October 2020 ie 4 weeks later. We hope that this will buy us time and  that the Covid 19 restrictions will have eased enough for us to go ahead.

We have also decided to change the Half Marathon course to a 2 lap one using the the Coast Road to Marske section (and omitting the Trunk Road Section). This will help protect the financial viability of the event.

As a results of the course change the race timetable will also change, provisionally as follows:

9:15 2k Fun Run
9:40 Half Marathon
9:50 5k
10:05 10k

Of course we still can't be sure that we will be able to go ahead, and if we do have to cancel due extended Covid 19 restrictions (or if you are unable to attend the new date) you will be able to have your entry deferred to next year or refunded (the refund amount will be the total entry fee paid less the EntryCentral processing charge included in that fee, which we can’t recover).

Cheers
