Lets Run Adventures HM 55 Night Recce 15/02/2020

The start will be by the Large Car Park at Cod Beck just outside of Osmotherley at 4pm. Transport if required will leave from the long stay car park at the start of the Cleveland Way in Helmsley at 3pm.

The route will follow the Cleveland Way from Scarth Nick to the finish at Helmsley. There will be two checkpoints along the way providing drinks and snacks. The distance is around 25 miles and it is anticipated that the event will take around ten hours.

There will be two groups catering for the varying abilities, although primarily aimed at those entering the HM 55 in March the recce is open to anyone who would like to do some night running and are able to complete the distance within ten hours.

Equipment to be carried is as follows,

  • Waterproof jacket and bottoms with taped seams
  • Hat and gloves
  • Long running bottoms if not worn
  • At least 500 mils of fluid
  • Spare food
  • Head torch with spare batteries
  • Spare insulating top/jacket
  • Emergency shelter/ bivvy bag
  • Whistle/Compass
  • Map OL26 or equivalent (Harveys)
  • Fully charged Mobile phone
  • it is suggested that you have the OS Locate and Any three words Apps downloaded onto your phone

The pace will be steady as the main function of the event is to recce the HM55 route from Scarth Nick to the end at Helmsley and as an introduction to night running for those not familiar with it.

Each participant will sign to say that they have the mandatory kit, remember this is a winter event and the kit list is the minimum you should be carrying.

Last year there was snow during the day which stopped just prior to the start of the event, the night was then very cold and clear giving everyone spectacular views across the moors.
