Route Guide and Route map

Both ROUTES cover very exposed areas. The Trail Marathon climbs to the highest part of the North York Moors and stays at this height for several miles. Wind chill and exposure to the elements at this time of year will be very high! The above compulsory kit list is the very minimum you should carry. NO COMPULSORY KIT! NO RUN!


No compulsory kit list check for the 10k, but really recommend at a minimum a waterproof jacket, hat and gloves!!
Remember you are running through exposed moorland in December and the conditions can be pretty extreme at times!
Even fast runners can have a bad day and slow down or injure themselves, extra kit may just save yourself from visiting hypothermia ;o)


All three routes are marked with tape and signs. There will be foot sweepers for the Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k
You must take the route signed (Taped) there are various marshalls out on the course at various road crossings.
If you decide to retire please head for the next checkpoint, here the Marshall will contact one of the race team and we will pick you up and return you back to the start. Please be patient though for your lift.

All Hardmoors 26.2 series races will be taped and signed to help with navigation but in some situations signage and tape can go missing on the day of the event (whether it be accidental or deliberate) So competitors will be provided with a downloadable race route description and downloadable maps of the course which are to be used if tape and signs are not apparent. It is the competitors responsibility to navigate themselves throughout the course.
