Guess My Time - Hardwolds 80

My final ultra of 2018 is the Hardwolds 80 miles on Saturday 24th November. It will be the first time this race has been run but it was part of the Hardmoors 200 in 2017. I was on the support team of my friends Andy & Sarah Norman so I have been to all the checkpoints and ran on bits of the course as I supported their attempt.

The Hardwolds 80 is along the Wolds Way which goes from Kingston upon Hull to Filey. It is a varied route without any major climbs but lots of undulations.

To take part and have a chance to win these prizes all you have to do is send me your guess in hours, minutes and seconds of how long you think it will take me to complete the 80 miles.

As before there is only one guess per time so if your time is taken I’ll ask you to guess again.

To give you an idea here are my goals for the race. Runners have 24hrs to complete the 80 miles.

  • Bronze – sub 20hrs
  • Silver – sub 19hrs
  • Gold – sub 18hrs 30mins

If you want to take part please send your guess by 5pm on Thursday 22nd November 2018 by:-

    Dear John,

    I guess 19:10:30

    Good luck!


  2. Hi John, I guess 20:10:15. You seem to have done so much running this year you could be really well trained for this event or … maybe you have done a little too much. The darkness and the weather might slow you down a bit too. And the filming must curb your performance a fair bit - but that’s a habit I hope you keep up. I hope you prove me wrong and make gold. Roger

  3. Matt Hollins says:

    Hi John,

    I think you will complete the race in 20:35:15.
    All the best and I hope the weather stays fair for you,

    Good luck,


  4. Derek Gibson says:

    Hi John
    If not already taken I will go for 19:18:45

    Have a great run

  5. John Collins says:

    Hi John,
    My guess is 18:59:59
    Be interesting to see if anyone gets close to the Wolds Way record of 13:23 by Neil Ridsdale and Jim Rodgers. Perhaps not the right time of year for that.
    Best of luck.

  6. John Collins says:

    How about 18:44:49?

  7. Pete says:

    Hi John
