Kings Road Cleethorpes

Race overview

We have a FLAT, FAST & FABULOUS ‘NEW’ Coastal 10k for you this year to help us celebrate being back with live races!!

Whilst we are delighted that races are starting to happen as we move out of COVID-19, unfortunately we will be unable to organise a half marathon this year.

With some restrictions still being in place, having to work across two local authorities will bring challenges which operationally will leave us in doubt as to whether we can safely organise the half.

The Half Marathon will return in 2022.

We are, however, delighted that we are able to organise a 10k which is entirely on tarmac, with the exception of a small section of around 150m in length on a coastal path.

10km

  • Fabulous coastal views
  • Flat and fast course on roads, coastal footpath(150m) and promenade
  • Chip timing
  • Closed roads
  • Fabulous event medal, seaside rock and technical tee shirt
  • Great spectator support on the promenade finish

The 5th ABP Humber Coastal race in Cleethorpes will take place on Sunday 19th September. This year it will be in the form of a lovely flat and scenic 10km race, which takes in everything fantastic about Cleethorpes. With a start on Kings Road the route takes runners through the Meridian showground, through the Haven and Fitties sites then onto the wonderful coastal footpath for the long run back into the resort, with a rousing finish on the Promenade.

 

Every finisher will receive a race tee shirt, bespoke medal as well as some seaside rock.

 

The race will again be supporting the life saving work that Cleethorpes RNLI do to keep people safe, as well as support for several local community groups who will receive a financial donation for their support.

 

Neil Pattison from organisers Tape2Tape said, ‘We are absolutely delighted to be given the green light to organise the ABP Humber Coastal 10k this year. We still very much have Covid-19 as part of our extensive planning and will put appropriate measures in place after consultation with the local Public Health England team. This will be a great opportunity for runners to take part in a coastal 10km race which provides wonderful far reaching views over the Humber. It will be a day to remember.

 

Entries will open at 6pm on Friday 25th June. Anyone who enters the race over this weekend will be able to choose their own race number at no extra cost, which will see runners choosing such as dates of birth or numbers which are important to them being emblazoned across their runner bib on race day.

 

 

Dafydd Williams, Head of Communications, Policy and Economic Development at ABP Humber, said, ‘We are delighted to be in the fifth year of holding the ABP Humber Coastal event. We really enjoy sponsoring a brilliant community event, but with safety at the forefront of everything we do, we have had to scale back to a 10km celebration run. The event gives the option to join in on the day, and getting to see the beautiful seaside views, or joining in on your own route virtually, it means everyone has the opportunity to receive a fabulous medal and t-shirt. We look forward to seeing the full event return next year, but in the meantime, stay safe and keep running

It travels along Kings Road before turning left onto Meridian Road, then right into the back of Meridian Showground.  An anti-clockwise route inside the showground is taken before exiting back out onto Kings Road and onto Thorpe Park holiday Park.

A right turn back off the Fitties and a left turn onto the Humber Bank affording you some fabulous coastal views!

Thank you for submitting your details.

We will be in touch with you if more places become available.

Covid-19

We take our Covid-19 responsibilities very seriously.

An extensive plan has been submitted to the Event Safety Advisory Group and scrutinised by all members, who include Public Health England, NE Lincolnshire Council and all emergency services.

We have been given permission for the race to go ahead, with the following conditions

  • Reduction on capacity  to 2000 runners
  • No mass start to prevent overcrowding
  • Rolling start in smaller groups from 10am until 1030am
  • Provision of hand sanitizer at key locations
  • Extensive briefing to runners, spectators and the general public
  • Regular contact with Public Health England

Rolling Race Start

Due to Covid-19 restrictions we will be having a rolling race start. If conditions allow this will revert to a mass start and all runners updated in die course.

Instead of a mass start,  runners will be allowed across the start line in much smaller socially distanced numbers, between 10am and 1030 am..

Using the on-line entry system, runners must select your chosen race start time. This will be the time when you enter the start area.

This means there will be a steady flow of runners crossing the line, avoiding any mass gatherings.

Runners are  advised not to turn up at the entrance to the start line until your allotted start time, except for popping to the nearby loos.

Runners start times will also be endorsed on the front of your runner number, which will assist in controlling numbers into the start area. You will only be allowed to enter the area at your allotted time.

We feel that this plan of significantly reduced participants together with a phased start will meet the needs of social distancing throughout.

Runner Code of Conduct

UK Athletics have produced a code of conduct for runners who take part in licensed events. This will be included in our communications plan and will be added to if ESAG members wish to include other pertinent points.

  • Do not travel to the event if you are showing any symptoms of covid-19 as outlined by the NHS
  • Do your homework – make sure you are aware of and understand the pre-race briefing information offered by your event

Virtual Race

For anyone who does not feel they can enter the actual race there is a virtual option where you can run a 10k at a safe place and time of your choosing, anytime between 19th September and 3rd October.

You can run it all in one go or over several days to suit your needs.

You can then upload your times to a separate results system.(if you choose to do so)

Your virtual medal and tee shirt will be posted out to you before the end of July.

There will be no separate prize pool for the 2021 virtual race.

Inclusivity

The race is inclusive and we encourage entries from all runners, irrespective of their  ability. We encourage anyone who has any concerns about the course and whether or not it is suitable for their individual circumstances to contact Nicola by e mail Nicola@tape2tape.co.uk or telephone 01472 824894. We will be happy to meet with you on the course and discuss any areas of concern you may have.

10KM Course

The 10km course itself is flat, on wide tarmac roads(with the exception of the last 150m which is on an uneven grass bank and through a small section of sand). Unfortunately we were unable to design a course to avoid this section and as a result we feel the course is not suitable for self-propelled wheelchair users.

You are however encouraged, irrespective of your ability, to contact Nicola@tape2tape.co.uk or telephone 01472 824894 to discuss your individual circumstances so we can jointly decide on the best start time or position in the field for you.

Age

We are bound by Run Britain rulings which state the minimum age for the 10km race is 15.

Parking

There are plenty of parking spaces close to the start/finish area.

Visual impairment

Any visually impaired athlete is encouraged to run with a guide, who has a hi-viz tabard on denoting their role. Entry into the race is free for a guide, please contact Nicola@tape2tape.co.uk or telephone 01472 824894.
