There will be aid stations along the route stocked with plenty of refreshments to keep you well fuelled throughout the journey.
You can also enter this as a virtual race during the week 1st – 9th May. Enter the virtual race, send How Hard Can It Be your Garmin/Strava link, they will compile the results from across the globe and then send your bling out to you!

How Hard Can it be
We have been involved in event management for over 11 years working on all race distances from 5K’s right up to Ultra Marathons. We are actively involved in the course build of numerous OCR’s that take place in the UK. When we launched How Hard Can it be Events, we wanted to make running events fun and put on events that we would want to take part in ourselves. That is why we have worked hard to host smaller, friendlier events, where people can relax and get to know people and enjoy the whole running experience. We think this philosophy is what makes us stand out from the crowd.
