Due to COVID we are offering the Hardmoors 55 as a virtual event. 

The Hardmoors 55 Virtual must be completed in under 16 hours all as a single stage run (ie you cannot complete the mileage over several days, the distance must be completed all in one go like the actual race)

You can complete the distance wherever you want, be it on a treadmill, laps of your garden or your own 55 mile route. If you decide to run the 55 miles on the actual Hardmoors 55 route you will find the route description and GPX file on the Hardmoors Website 

You will have until July 1st 2021 to complete the distance

Please abide by the current COVID 19 Regulations

What do you get? 

  • Technical Hardmoors t shirt (posted to you)
  • Race medal (posted to you)
  • £1 of your race fee will go to North York Moors 

Please note that t shirts & medal will be posted after the event.



The main thing about this event and in the true ethos of Hardmoors it's all about completing the challenge.

The leaderboard and results won't always tell the full story. Some of us can get to the hills, trails, moors etc to run a hilly muddy course similar to the route or even on the route itself. Others, due to time restraints, work, lack of transport, shielding, etc have had to run their distance on a treadmill, back streets of a town/city etc.

Results are impossible to compare unless run on the same course and on the same day. 

Results are for ourselves, a way of testing ourselves against our previous times, whatever they may be. Be proud, you got off your sofa and pushed yourself to complete your challenge!

Adding your result:
Once you have completed the distance, Edit your Entry and record your time.  Remember to click NEXT, tick the disclaimers and SAVE ENTRY and then your time and current position will appear on the Leaderboard

Add your Strava and social media links:
Add your Strava account to the Update My Details screen so that it is displayed next to your name in the results.  You can also add your other social media accounts.


For the Hardmoors 55 Virtual to qualify as a Slam race you will need to run the exact  Hardmoors route in under 16 hours (Single Stage) You will have until August 1st 2021 to complete this. Once you have completed the route and entered your results into the leaderboard you must email Hardmoors on with your name, which Slam you are entered in and evidence of completing the 55 route in under 16 hours (ie strava, Garmin connect etc).  This will qualify your Virtual 55 run to be part of your slam and on completion of the other slam races you will be a Slam finisher but you will not be on the Slam  leaderboard.
