In 2017 to mark the 10th year of the Hardmoors 110, there will be a one off special edition Hardmoors 200 mile race .
The Hardmoors 200 Ultramarathon will start in Kingston upon Hull and head alongside the River Humber following the Transpennine Trail to reach the start of the beautiful Wolds Way National Trail close to the Humber Bridge at Hessle
The Hardmoors 200 will then follow the Yorkshire Wolds Way for 79 miles along wooded slopes, over hills and through valleys, eventually descending from the northern escarpment to the final section of the Way finishing on the dramatic headland of Filey Brigg and the start of the stunning Cleveland Way National Trail /Hardmoors 110 route
(HM 200 Competitors will have 24 hours to complete the first 88 miles)
The Hardmoors 200 will then follow the full 112 miles of the Hardmoors 110/Cleveland Way Trail along the stunning Cleveland Heritage coastline visiting the seaside resort of Scarborough, the old smuggling town of Robin Hood’s Bay, Dracula’s Whitby, Staithes, Runswick Bay and Saltburn, before passing through the beautiful Cleveland Hills and the North York Moors before reaching the race finish in the market town of Helmsley.
(HM 200 Competitors will have 36 hrs to complete the 112 miles of the Cleveland Way/Hardmoors 11o)
The Hardmoors 200 as the name suggests will be a 200 mile single stage Ultra

The Hardmoors 200 will be held on Friday 5th May (0800) until Sunday 7th May 2017
PLEASE NOTE as well as the challenge of the 200 miles in its entirety, the cut offs will be a huge factor in this race. Completion will be low.

MARSHALLS & SWEEPERS
Marshalls and sweepers have given up their time to help out at this event, some marshalls/sweepers their full weekend. Marshalling/Sweeping is a long tiring job and marshalling an ultra event is, well, ultra long and tiring but in its way very rewarding helping you guys achieve your goals. So if you are feeling a bit grumpy, hide it, be pleasant and thank the marshalls. Yes you are still capable of this after 100 plus miles! Any bad treatment, abusive language etc given to a Marshall will result in that competitor being disqualified from the race.
RULES AND REGULATIONS
These can be found on this website, but I would like to bring up to your attention the following.
LITTER AND NOISE
As ultra runners the majority of us have a great deal of respect for our surroundings. So please live up to our values and do not drop litter and please be quiet while passing through communities at night.
Stick to the race route
As well as the declared checkpoints there will also be several undisclosed checkpoints, if you stick to the route and DO NOT TAKE SHORTCUTS you will stumble across these CPs. If you miss any of these checkpoints then you will be disqualified. REMEMBER YOU WILL BE CARRYING A TRACKER & YOUR ROUTE WILL BE MONITORED DURING THE RACE, PLUS POSSIBLY AFTER.
Scarborough You must stick to the seafront through Scarborough
Shut all gates
When you pass through a gate YOU MUST CLOSE IT!!
MARSHALL /RACE CONTROL
What ever the Marshall/Race control say is final! If at a checkpoint a Marshall or Race Control informs you that you should not continue for whatever reason, THEN YOU DO NOT CONTINUE!! If you arrive at a checkpoint after the checkpoint has closed, then you have timed out and your race is over!
In event of the tide being in at Runswick Bay, you MUST wait with (or near to) the checkpoint marshall, until he allows you to proceed. The marshall’s word is final, if you continue without the marshall’s say, you will be disqualified. The time you have waited for the tide to go out and the path safe to cross, will be recorded and subtracted from your finish time.
FOOD (AT CHECKPOINTS AND RACE FINISH)
Various Checkpoints along the Hardmoors 110/200 route will provide basic food (those checkpoints are listed above) Checkpoint food will be flapjacks and jelly babies etc to complement your own stores. Hot drinks will be available at Millington, Ravenscar Village Hall, Kildale Village Hall and Square Corner. Also rice pudding, sandwiches etc will be available at Millington, Kildale and Ravenscar checkpoints.
Karen from Sports Stadium will be providing massages at the race finish for £10 for 15 minutes. Helps you be able to walk the next day, well kind of walk ;o))
The finishers presentation will be held at 2000hrs Sunday at the Race Finish. If you are a Class winner etc, and need to leave early we will present you your Trophy/Award early.
