My fifth and final ultra of the year is coming up in less than two weeks so it’s time to open up my traditional ‘Guess My Time’ competition.
Plus the limited edition key ring which are highly sought after!!!
Plus your name on my Hall Of Fame!!!!
All you have to do to win is guess how long it will take me to run the White Rose Ultra (60 miles) on Sunday 1st November 2015 (starting at 8am) in hours, minutes and seconds.
To give you an idea the race is 2 laps of 30 miles in Yorkshire.
The profile of the course ….
This was the profile from last year when the race started near Marsden. So on the profile the lap this year starts at the 13 mile mark. The web site states there are 3,865ft of climb so double that for the 2 laps 6,730ft which is not too different (7,423ft) to the Hardmoors 60 I ran last year in 11:51:20.
My goals for the race are as follows …
- Bronze: under 13hrs
- Silver: under 12hrs 30mins
- Gold: under 12hrs
Plus I’m going to have a Platinum goal for this one just in case everything goes really well!!
- Platinum: sub 11hrs 30mins
I’m also keen to see if I can run two even laps. I reckon most people will run the first one significantly faster than the second so if I can run more evenly then I should be catching people!
If you would like to take part please send your guess by 6pm on Friday 30th October 2015 by any of the following ways! (Please not there will be only one guess per time so if your time has been taken I’ll ask you to submit another one!) ..

I have hired a tracker from the race organisers so if you want to follow my progress throughout the race go to the race web site where hopefully they will have a link. If they post it before the weekend I’ll share it here and on twitter and facebook!
