Hadring the Swift is one of the ten runners participating in the Footrace of the Nine Holds, representing their home hold. During the running, the player character will encounter Hadring, whose on the floor, bleeding out. You have the option to interact with him or not. If you perform the former, he will tell you where the attacker had escaped. This will skip the extra part of the quest where the player character has to ask witnesses where the attacker went.
