Redcar's 34th Half Marathon gets underway this weekend, and people are being invited to line the route and show their support for friends and family.
Taking place on Sunday 25 September at 10am on Majuba Road, the race will welcome over 1,000 runners.
The Half Marathon events for this year will again include the INEOS sponsored one mile Go Run for Fun aimed at primary school children, the Beacon 5 Kilometre and the wheelchair half marathon.
“Many of the runners will be raising money for charity, so it would be a fantastic show of support if there were a lot of people cheering them on.
“It’s going to be a great day for all the family and I look forward to welcoming some of the best athletes in the region to Redcar.”
To ensure the safety of competitors a number of the borough's roads will be closed throughout the duration of the event and some local bus services maybe suspended or diverted.
