Hardmoors 15 – 1 January 2019
Jonathan Frary had a great run, finishing 3rd overall out of 132 runners with a time of 1:56:24.
The route was a circular starting at Robin Hoods Bay following the rail trail briefly south before heading north on the Cleveland Way back through Robin Hoods Bay to pick up the rail trail again. Once on the rail trail the route continues northbound to Whitby, at the end of the line the Cleveland Way is once again picked up and is followed on its southward leg passing by Whitby Abbey and along stunning coastline to return back to Robin Hoods Bay and the Race Finish.
