My first ultra of 2019 is the Hardmoors 50 miles on Saturday 16th March. Initially I planned to run with Katrina but her knee is sore again and quite rightly she has decided to withdraw from the race so I’m on my own!
I have run the Hardmoors 55 five times between 2010 and 2018 as follows
|20 March 2010||Hardmoors 55||55 miles||11:46:10|
|22 March 2014||Hardmoors 55||55 miles||10:10:24|
|21 March 2015||Hardmoors 55||55 miles||9:35:40|
|19 March 2016||Hardmoors 55||55 miles||10:44:33|
|17 March 2018||Hardmoors 55 (with Katrina)||43 miles (short)||11:09:01|
This year is the 50th anniversary of the Cleveland Way and so the race have been asked to make this race part of the celebrations. The course has been changed very slightly but as far as I can work out it is a very similar distance.
I’m looking forward to doing the race again as it will give me a good idea of where my endurance fitness is as I build up to my main event of the year, the Berghaus Dragon’s Back in May.
The race starts at 8am on Saturday 16th March 2019
Once again my good friends at http://www.ultramarathonrunning.com are offering prizes for all my ultras this year.
For this race they are offering the closest 3 guesses a prize ..

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 50 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.
