SPINKS AT THE DOUBLE AGAIN
Nicky claims yet another first
Serial record-breaker Nicky Spinks has become the first person known to run a ‘Double’ Charlie Ramsay Round. The Ramsay is a 56-mile challenge in the Scottish Highlands, including 24 Munros and 28,500ft of ascent, which has had only 123 completions.
Technically the 51-year-old had to complete the circuit twice within 48 hours. She was on target for some 30 hours, but two hot days and a mix-up with supporters put her behind schedule. “There was no way I was going to abort,” she told
TR. “I felt a bit miserable, but there was nothing wrong with me.” Despite being on her feet for two days and two nights – with no sleep – Nicky pushed on to finish in 55hr 56 min.
“I had an incredible weekend running with a great team of supporters,” she said. “The sunrises and sunsets were mindblowing. I’m slowly feeling more pleased with it.” ■ Read more at runbg.co.uk
