Below is a link to a map where you MUST NOT park


At Lord stones Country Park there is a café plus shop as well as the outside kiosk.


Close to the Lord Stones checkpoint there are toilets which are the property of Lord Stones Country Park, these are really for Campers and customers of the café. If you must use them please put a donation into the donations box on the side of the building. Please keep them clean.


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.


These can be found on this website, but I would like to bring up to your attention the following.


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!!


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.


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.
