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 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
