1. Start by finding the distance covered in the first stage:

\frac{3}{5} \times 42 = 25.2 \text{ km}.

2. Then, calculate the distance covered in the second stage:

\frac{3}{8} \times 42 = 15.75 \text{ km}.

3. Add both results to find the total distance covered:

25.2 + 15.75 = 40.95 \text{ km}.

4. Since Pedro cannot exceed the total race distance of 42 km, the total distance covered is:

\boxed{40.95}

2. Then, calculate the distance covered in the second stage:
