Hardmoors Saltburn

Sunday saw the first of the Hardmoors trail series for 2019 at Saltburn. The weather was kind but the conditions underfoot were very muddy in places, especially up on the moors on the marathon route. Clear skies allowed for some amazing views. The series offers 3 race distances: 10k, half marathon and marathon but these always come up longer than stated.

Michael Bray and Sheena Jackson completed the 10k (actually 7.8 miles) in a time of 2:40.

Four members completed the half marathon (14.1 miles) – Jo Thwaites and Koren Carr were first back for the club in a time of 3:13 closely followed by Linda Cadman and Nicole Sutton in 3:22.

Three members completed the marathon (27.9 miles). Claire Baker completed the course in 5:33 followed by Lena Conlin in 6:12, taking 9 minutes off her PB for the route, and Kim Holden finished in 6:52 after adding a bonus half a mile on towards the end.
