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. Registered Charity Number 1168578

Coast Road Race Cancellation Info - Email sent 3:30pm 17th March


Due to the coronavirus situation we have no option except to cancel the first two races of the Coast Road Race Series. This is also in accordance with England Athletics updated advice.

Please read the rest of this email carefully so you don’t email me to ask a question that is already answered!

For the avoidance of doubt, the Mermaid 10k (10th April) and Spring Coast Road 5k (28th April) are cancelled and will not be re-arranged.

Entries for the Everyone Active 10k (14th June) and Summer Coast Road 5k (15th July) have been suspended and will either re-open or be cancelled depending on how the situation develops.

What are we doing with your entry?

The situation is complicated by the fact we have some (most) people that have entered all five races as a series and received a discount whilst others have entered on a race by race basis.

Our default position is to defer your entry to 2021 which means you have a guaranteed place and no further charge. This gives you full value and me least work!

I will refund anyone who emails a request, the amount as per the table below ie the total entry fee paid less the EntryCentral processing charge included in that fee, which we can’t recover.

Those runners that have entered the whole series will need to enter the remaining individual races should we re-open entries. I will email you in advance on a race by race basis ahead of re-opening so that you are best placed to get an entry ahead of others.

Note if you have an entry originally purchased by someone else the refund will be to their card, not yours.

Thank you for entering the Harry Gamble-Thompson 20Ten. Harry was a long time member and chairman of New Marske Harriers and previously a member of Middlesbrough & Cleveland Harriers. His forte was the the Marathon and other long distance races. He is ranked 12th UK All Time for his 2:32:10 Marathon at London in 1982. Harry passed away on the eve of this race last year - so it is a fitting tribute to him that the race is named in his memory.

At the entrance to the park you can see the Memorial Benches - one for Harry and the other for Jim & Anne Reilly of Redcar Running Club who were long time supporters of athletics and indeed of this event in its early years.

Harry, Jim & Anne between them gave the sport nearly 200 years of service as competitors, technical and club officials. They are much missed.

I am sending this email as you have entered the New Marske Harriers Spring Coast Road 5k due to be held on Wednesday 29th April, either as an individual race entry or as part of a series entry.

Due to the Tour de Yorkshire cycling event stage finish at Redcar, there will be a road closure affecting the Coast Road from Redcar to Marske for 2 days starting 29th April 9am onwards. This is to allow preparations that will include erecting large screens and caravan on or near our running route.

Whilst it may have been possible to devise a route to avoid any obstructions, there would still be some uncertainties.

The decision has therefore been made to bring forward the race by 24 hours to Tuesday 28th April.

Hopefully most people have no issues arising with the change, and for those that do, there is sufficient notice to make any alternative arrangements to allow you to run.

If you are unable to attend on the new date – please contact me as soon as you can: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
