From 14-21 January 2012, I am competing in the first running of The Spine. Labeled as "Britain's most brutal race", The Spine is a non-stop 268 mile winter ultramarathon encompassing the entire length of the Pennine Way.
Running from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders, the Pennine Way crosses some of the most beautiful, difficult and challenging terrain in England, including the Peak District, Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland National Park & The Cheviots. Competitors will face the most extreme weather conditions England has to offer - deep snow, ice, wind and rain in a grueling 7 day race. Tiredness, fatigue and sleep deprivation will also play havoc with performance. It promises to be "interesting".
