Mountain Fuel are delighted to have teamed up with the Hardmoors Race Series set in the beautiful North York Moors and the Cleveland Hills.
The series includes varying distances designed to suit athletes of all levels, culminating in the 160 mile Ultramarathon Hardmoors 160 (‘The Ring Of Steele’) with over 7000 metres of ascent. Not one for the faint hearted!
With such strenuous distances to cover, across some of the most testing terrain in the country, there are no better supplements to take on board than the Mountain Fuel nutritional system. Jon and Shirley Steele who run the Hardmoors Race Series are keen advocates of Mountain Fuel.
