Bullock Smithy Hike

This looks like an interesting event, but is it actually open to/suitable for ultra runners?


  • Ben - yes you can certainly run it, I work with a guy who has run it twice, he says its a cracking event well organised..
  • I might be tempted then.

    Oooooh Bullock Smithy Hike! It is indeed suitable for ultra runners and there is keen competition every year between the Stockport and Macc Harriers. 

    If you have any questions Ben I suggest you ask on the Wanna Blista thread in Clubhouse. Nexus Icon who goes on there is the course record holder and there are lots of BS fans on there. I am a slow person though, and DNFed when I had a go at it (but I didn't really train though image) so I am not an expert!
  • In fact it is back in the RunFurther champs for this year.  It will make September a tough month for anyone going for the Grand Slam with an Itinerery like this:

      1 Sept Bullock Smithy

     15 Sept High Peak 40

      29 Sept Hardmoors 60

     Personally I will probably be doing just the High Peak 40, although I do love that bit of Yorkshire coast that the Hardmoors goes along......

  • Damn it Roger, I would love to do all those races!

    Being realistic, I will probably drop the High Peak 40, since it is in the middle and I have done it before anyway. 

  • BD- I am one of the said Stockport runners (Morticia mentioned) who now hold the current course record.

    Team and indivdual

    I cannot speak highly enough of this event, it's simply brilliant, I've ran it for the last 6 years but unfortunatly can't do it this year due to my nephew getting married on the same day.

    As a group we have recced it to death there isn't a short cut we don't know but there is a few sections where some of us have still took a wrong turn

    If you want any info about this event I'll gladly help out.

    Sorry Jonah I didn't realize there was a team course record.  Please don't hold it against me and move Disley further down your Infinity list! image
  • Mort - That's it, further down the pecking orderimage
