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.



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.

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!
