INOV-8 AM­BAS­SADOR NICKY SPINKS

Last year in May, 49-year-old fell run­ner and breast­cancer sur­vivor Nicky made fell­run­ning his­tory by be­com­ing the fastest per­son to run a Dou­ble Bob Gra­ham Round. Nicky marked ten years post-di­ag­no­sis by run­ning the 132-mile Lake District route, (which takes in 54,000ft of as­cent and 84 sum­mits), in 45hr 30min. She fol­lowed this by plac­ing an epic 12th woman at Ul­tra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB).

INOV-8 AM­BAS­SADOR JAS­MIN PARIS

In 2016 Jas­min set new women’s records for three UK 24-hour run­ning chal­lenges: the Bob Gra­ham Round (Eng­land), Ram­say Round (Scot­land) and Paddy Buckley (Wales). For the Ram­say Round (58mile, 28,500ft as­cent), the 33-year-old beat the fastest men’s time, with 16hr 13min. She also placed sixth woman in her first-ever 100-miler at the UTMB, bagged bronze at the Skyrun­ning World Cham­pi­onships and won the Ex­treme Skyrun­ning World Se­ries.
