The McCain Yorkshire Coast 10km Road Race and 2.5km Fun Run will start from the Scarborough Spa.
The 10k Road Race is a traffic free, flat course along the spectacular Yorkshire Coast; Scarborough South Bay, Marine Drive, Northstead Manor Gardens & the North Bay Promenade.
The 10km Road Race, 2.5km & 1.6Km Fun Runs will start from the Scarborough Spa, South Bay, Scarborough. 10K race starts at 10am prompt. 2.5K & 1.6K Fun Runs start after the main event at 11:30am
Traffic Free Courses. Both courses are on roads that have been completely closed to all traffic (thanks to Scarborough Borough Council for their support in allowing the road closures)
The 10km course is almost flat with approximately 10 metres of climb throughout. The 10km course route is as follows:- Start at the Spa Complex, onto South Bay foreshore, Sandside, Marine Drive and around the Castle Headland. Continue to the Peasholm Gap roundabout and then through Northstead Manor Gardens (past the miniature railway station), through the fantastic new open air theatre and out onto the North Bay promenade and on to the Sealife Centre. The turn point is just after the Sea Life Centre and proceed back directly along North Bay promenade (past the brightly coloured beach chalets,) along Marine Drive and back to the Spa Complex. The course has been accurately marked by Paul Hodgson to IAAF standards and is precisely 10,000 metres. The 2km Family Fun Run course route is as follows:-
Both the 2.5km & 1.6km Fun Runs start together at the Spa Complex and take in the South Bay Foreshore. The 1.6km Fun run turns on the pedestrian crossing short of the Lifeboat House whilst the 2.5km run continues onto Sandside before turning just short of the Luna Park roundabout before heading back to the Spa.
Schools Challenge. To encourage youngsters to get out and take part in the Fun Run through their school we have created the "Schools Challenge". The Jimmy Corrigan Trophy (Jimmy Corrigan was a great supporter of junior sports) will be awarded to Schools that have the highest number of participants in the Fun Run. There is a category for both large and small schools. Anyone can enter for your school including pupils, teachers, parents, friends etc - Just make sure you put your school name down on the entry form We will be distributing entry forms and posters to all schools in the region when the new term commences.
Team Challenge. To encourage teams to enter the 10km race in addition to the normal running club team competition we have the following categories:- 1. Charity Team Challange - Any team of 3 or more that is raising money for their preferred charity. 2. Workplace Team Challenge - any work organisation or business etc: Both require at least 3 team members (male, female or mixed) - the first 3 over the finish line to count. Make sure you fill in your team name on the form.
