2012 Launch - New Date, New Start and Finish

Here we are in 2012 with what should be a great year of Sport.   In this Olympic Year when better to have a really good summer of training for the 30th anniversary of the Redcar Half Marathon.   This blog will provide news about the race, some training tips and any events associated with this years race.

Entries are now open for the race in 2012 which will be on the 30th September 2012.  The race this year will start from the Redcar Leisure Centre on Majuba Road.   Entry details are here.

You will probably have noticed that Redcar is undergoing a bit of a transformation.   We have new sea defences being built, a new leisure centre and community facilities under construction, a vertical pier and a new youth building called MyPlace all underway and nearing completion as we speak. 

The 2012 race has had to accomodate these works and as such has had to be delayed to September 30th and as a result of this change the start and finish has moved to Majuba Road as we were unable to secure the fields at Green Lane as the football season will be underway. 

The course remains essentially the same with the outward leg heading towards Marske, turning and heading back along the seafront to Redcar and up the trunk road.   We hope to create a special atmosphere at the Leisure Centre which will be a great place to see the race both at the start and finish but also half way into the race.   I am sure there will be some people who need that extra bit of encouragement at that point to smash that second half of the race.

Best of luck with your training for 2012 and keep visiting this site for more information, tips and news!
