Guess My Time - Hardmoors 55

This will be my first proper ultra of the year after a couple of ‘virtual’ races in the summer.

I love the Hardmoors 55 having run it 6 times before. This race was due to be in March but it was postponed to October.

I’m really looking forward to running the course from Guisborough to Helmsley again. It will be interesting to see what the conditions will be like in October rather than March.

It is fair to say it can’t be any worse than 2018 when I ran with Katrina and the race was stopped at Kildale due to the ‘Beast from the East.’ Then last year in 2019 we had rain and wind in our faces for the whole route!!

Here is a summary of my 6 Hardmoors 55 races

To help you with my ‘Guess My Time’ competition were you have to guess how long it will take me to run the 55 miles here are my bronze, silver and gold goals.

I have the South Downs Way 100 two weeks after the Hardmoors 55 so I’m going to take it a little easier that I normally would as I want to be able to recover in time for the longer race.

  • Bronze - sub 13hrs
  • Silver - sub 12hrs 30mins
  • Gold - sub 12hrs is once again providing a great prize. This time it is an Ultimate Direction Ultra Belt 5.0

Plus a limited edition key ring!

So please send you guess by 5pm on Thursday 22nd October 2020 by
