Guess My Time - Hardmoors 55

This will be the 5th time I have run the Hardmoors 55 but this year will be different in that I’ll be running with Katrina.

I really enjoy this race which goes from Helmsley to Guisborough (though some years it is run in the opposite direction).

Here is a summary of my runs.  (NB My birthday is 20th March hence why I was 56 for two years on the run!)

This year Keith from is once again sponsoring my ‘Guess My Time’ competitions.

For this race Keith is offering a Salomon S-Lab Light Windproof Jacket for the closest guess. I’m sure there is a Women’s version as well!!

Plus a limited edition John Kynaston Guess My Time Key Ring!!

To have an opportunity to win these prizes all you have to do is guess in hours, minutes and seconds how long it will take Katrina & I to run the 55 miles from Helmsley to Guisborough on Saturday 17th March 2018 starting at 8am.

To give you an idea of time we are aiming for (though don’t tell Katrina!!) here is my (our?!) goals. We have been doing our long runs (30miles & 37miles) at around 15 mins per mile which means 4mph. So 55 miles divided by 4 = almost 13hrs.

  • Bronze - finish under 15hrs
  • Silver - sub 14hrs
  • Gold - sub 13hrs

To enter send your guess by 6pm Thursday 15th March 2018 by …

Please note that there can only be one guess per time so if your time has been taken I will ask you to change it.

    Hi John & Katrina, all the best for the Hardmoors, with some nippy CP stops and a favourable wind (& weather) my guess would be 14:26:42, have a great run and stay safe.

      Hi John and Katrina,
      Just seen the video of you and Katrina running the Hardmoors 55, the conditions looked brutal. But as you have said in the video, the race director made the right decision. Despite the conditions it looked like you both had a good day and were on for a good finish time. Well done to you both, there is always next year !.

  12. Gareth Crabb says:

    Hi John/Katrina , I reckon it’s gonna be silver- 13.26.00. Have a great outing…see you at the start.

  13. If you don’t hold Katrina back then I’d plump for 12:46 hrs 🙂

    Best of luck to you both, have fun for us.
