I went for my final easy run before Saturday’s BIG race. We had an athletics event for 130 P6 children today so once again I was on my feet all day but it was great and I loved it! The sun shone all day which always helps when you are outside!
I ran with Katrina and we chatted about the weekend and our plans. Katrina is looking forward to running the last 12 miles from Scarborough with me. I really hope I’m still able to run after 100miles and keep up with her!
So that’s my physical training for the Hardmoors 110 done. I’m really happy with my training since the HM55 so go into the race with my confidence high. I’m in work tomorrow but it’s an inservice day for the teachers so I’ll be in my office so it won’t be very taxing!
We are both off on Friday so we going to leave after breakfast. We’ll take our time and I want to go via Saltburn and Scarborough to show Katrina where the checkpoints are. We’ll then head to Helmsley to register and camp for the night.
If you want to follow my progress throughout the race you can! I’ve hired a tracker which will show you were I am throughout the race. Here is the link ….
The race starts at 8am on Saturday morning. If you look at the post with my splits then you should be able to see whether I’m on my sub 27hr plan. A number of other runners will also hired one but not everyone so my given position will only be out of those who have a tracker.
The Hardmoors 160 race starts at 5pm on Friday at Scarborough. Their route goes over the hills to Helmsley and then joins the 110 route. They have to be through Helmsley by the time we start at 8am (15hrs). Anyway if you want to follow them their tracker site is
I now have 53 guesses for my ‘Guess My Time’ Competition. If you still want to enter you have until 6pm tomorrow (Thursday night).
I’m not going to run with my iPhone but I will have a cheap Samsung as it’s part of the required kit. If you want to send me a text during the race the number is 07798 881124
I won’t be able to reply until after the race but I always enjoy reading them as it does spur me on. Please put your name as I don’t have many numbers in the phone so it won’t recognise your number!
