The Hardmoors 110 Ultramarathon starts in Filey and is run along the Cleveland Way National Trail encircling the North York Moors and the Cleveland Heritage coastline. It includes the town of Scarborough, Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby, Staithes, Runswick Bay and Saltburn. The race ends at Helmsley.

There will be 14 checkpoints with food and hot drinks between the start and finish lines. The cut-off is 36 hours and partial cut-off will be applicable at certain checkpoints.

Previous ultra running experience is required for registration. All runners, supported and unsupported runners must carry compulsory items and these will be checked at the start and during the race. Unsupported runners can leave dropbags at three specific checkpoints.

The race is fully marked and marshalled but a map is highly recommended.

The Hardmoors 110 is a UTMB qualifying race.

Hardmoor's 110 2017. My first attempt at this distance. I was very nervous but nerves were soon forgotten with the stunning coastal views in the first half and with the hilly section being at night, I didn't have to worry about heights. The aid stations were well stocked and helpful.
Great organisation, easy to navigate. Highly reccomended.

Hardmoors 110, 2017. I really liked this race. A friendly approach to a formidable distance; tough, but beautiful. Probably not for the faint hearted, especially the nighttime ascent up Roseberry Topping. Take more layers than you might anticipate; also running with a support crew to assist with hot drinks is a bonus, where possible. Hardmoors offers a difficult but achievable race.

2016 Hardmoors 110. A fantastic event from start to finish. Going up the lovely North Yorkshire coastline and then turning inland to take on the Moors at night. A great mix of steep climbs and nice runable sections make this a great and testing route. Seeing the sun come up over lovely Yorkshire scenery was a beautiful start to day 2.

2016, hard race with lots of short sharp climbs and many big steps along the coast. Best done with your own support view that can meet at many places along the route. Climbing results in fantastic views of some the best areas of the North York Moors and a gorgeous coastline. Compulsory kit is simple and nothing excessive for such an event.
