Scarborough Athletic Club’s ultra distance race specialist Nikki Carr, made a massive step up in an event distance, when she competed in the Hardmoors 160 event.

After completing the 2013 Hardmoors 112-mile race last year, Nikki took on the challenge of the 160-mile Hardmoors event.

The competitors started out at Scalby Mills, and headed westwards and inland to Helmsley, and then east towards the Cleveland Way and the finish at Filey via Whitby.

Nikki completed the race as the 12th overall and the third woman finisher in 52 hours and 46 minutes.

An indication of the toughness of this ultra event was that 16 of the 29 starters failed to complete the race.
