DIFFICULTY Race Difficulty Expert  

The Hardmoors 60 is a 60 miles race along the Cleveland coast, starting at Guisborough and ending at the Methodist Hall in Filey. It includes Saltburn, Runswick Bay, Staithes, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Ravenscar and Scarborough.

There will be an early morning coach to take runners from Filey to the start line at Guisborough.

There are seven checkpoints with water and food and the race is marshalled. Two non-returnable drop bags are allowed as are support crews, at the designated places. There is mandatory kit that will be check before and during the race.

The cut-off time is 18 hours but there are partial cut-off times in place at each check point. And finishing this race earns UTMB points.

Ran this first time in 2017 - Well organised, great views along the coast. Lots of steps but what do you expect cliff running? Will be back for more next year.

An excellently organised race from Guisborough to Filey, covering about 62-64 miles and 3.5km of ascent. A great route along the Yorkshire coast going through a few villages and towns and some stunning countryside. If you like steps you'll love this race, there are gazillions of them! The check points are well spaced and are very welcoming with friendly marshalls only too happy to help. The whole race has a real friendly vibe and I would highly recommend giving it a try.

Great race from start to finish. Have run it 2014, 2015 and 2016 (DNF's in 2014 and 2015).

Superb organisation, very friendly staff and marshalls. Other runners great, trails are spectacular.

Really great event from start to finish. Lots of info from the organisers and a beautiful course along the Yorkshire coast. The route takes you from Guisborough to Saltburn and then you head down to Filey, which is about 62 miles in total. You pass through picturesque coastal villages and some busy towns along the way. I really like the mix as it helped break the run up. Lots of steps to climb and descend. Also, some nice runnable sections too. The check points are well stocked and manned by really helpful people who tend to be runners too so they know exactly what to do. I enjoyed hanging around at the end sharing stories with other runners and refuelling on a great spread of food the organisers had provided at the finish. All in all, a long, but great day.

Fantastic event. Superbly well organised by the Hardmoors team and marshals. Beautiful scenery, with a decent amount of climbing and many very runnable sections. Great community feel, the start of other Hardmoors events for me! Highly recommended.

A great way to take in this beautiful stretch of coast.
Plenty of climbing makes it a challenging route but some nice runnable sections on the clifftops too.
Well organised again by the Hardmoors guys, recommended
