Hardmoors 30

01/01/2014

Three Dumfries Running Club members joined 150 other hardy runners gathering on the North Yorkshire Moors before light dawned on 2014.They were there for the Hardmoors 30 - a 30+ mile trail run starting and finishing in Ravenscar, via Hayburn Whyke, Robin Hoods Bay and Whitby (with 3050 feet of ascent and descent)...

The race started on cliff paths, with the mud, headwind and steps up and down to the coast a taste of things to come. After this the run became a race of two halves......an initial run along cinder paths up to Whitby, through the centre of town on cobbles and then up the 199 steps to the Abbey......and then an exciting wet, wild, muddy run up and down between cliff tops and beach with many steps and parts that had to be negotiated by dragging yourself up a slope hanging on to a fence to avoid falling in the mud.

The prior male course record of 4 hours 20 was obliterated by the 2014 winner, who ran a fabulous time of 3 hours 52. Jo Zakrzewski also had a great run to finish in second place overall in a time of 4 hours 7 (taking almost an hour off the ladies' course record).

Craig Malcolmson and Sebastian Pflanz set off together with a target of 5 hours 30 in mind. They stuck together until the coastal run returning from Whitby, when Craig's shoe choice of mudclaws came into their own, though Sebastian did find the rain washed away any traces of his mud face-plant. Both finished well within their target time - Craig in 44th place (5 hours 23) and Seb not far behind in 5 hours 28.

All were appreciative of the amazing buffet which was provided for runners and supporters by the race organiser's mother, setting everyone up for a great 2014
