Tracker
Included in your race entry is a tracker. A tracker will give out your location at any time online. A huge bonus for safety reasons and also handy for your crew (if you have one) to detect where you are on the route and when to 'brew up' ready for your arrival.

The trackers will be available for collection at the race registration (your name will be associated to an individual tracker)  It will be attached to your race vest for you. (If you lose a tracker you will be charged for a replacement tracker.) A couple of days before the event you will receive an email with a link to the tracker (plus it will be available on the Hardmoors website) so you can pass the link onto friends/family/ Facebook etc, so people can watch your progress throughout the event. More info here https://www.opentracking.co.uk/

The coach from Filey to Guisborough will depart from West Avenue Car Park YO14 9BE at 06.00 Saturday morning

OS Maps OL26/OL27 (Western and Eastern North York Moors) and OS301 (Scarborough/Filey) contains all the route,

Retirees

Pulling out of the race during the event

If you time out or retire and are unsupported please contact any of the contact numbers on your race bib, and we will arrange transportation to the race finish. Please note this may take a while and you may have to wait until the checkpoint you are at closes.

If you decide to drop out of the event due to injury or for any other reason please if possible make your way to the next checkpoint, unless close to the last checkpoint (could be the last checkpoint you visited may have closed before you manage to return to it). If injured and cannot continue and are between checkpoints again contact any of the numbers on your race number and we will pick you up.

If you decide you don't want to wait to return back to Filey then there is regular bus service between Middlesborough and Scarborough http://www.arrivabus.co.uk/. Main stops are Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay plus the outskirts of Staithes. From Scarborough to Filey there are Trains and Im sure buses (but I'm sure you are all competent enough to Google this or work it out on the day.)

Anyone retiring from the race MUST contact the next checkpoint if possible and also phone any of the numbers on your race number
