Just returned from an awesome Ultra marathon event called the Hardmoors 110 in North Yorkshire. It follows the Cleveland way for 114 miles from Helmsley to Filey passing Osmotherly, Carlton Bank, Wainstones, Guisbrough, Saltburn, Whitby and Scarbrough.
Some crazy fools do the lot solo (big respect) but as its our first attempt we decided to run it as a four man/girl team, Me, Ben Whitehead, Rachael Walker and Vikki Butler.
We started at 6.00pm friday evening and ran through the night to finish Saturday lunchtime. It was epic!
With no sleep and very little experience we managed to finish second in the teams and completed the entire loop in 20 hours.
This is just the start! Now im affraid we are hooked and we want more! The next event is a 60 miler in September. Once our shins and ankles are weight bearing we will be back in the hills for more training.
