Video: Cancer Survivor Nicky Spinks Sets Amazing Trail Running Record in England

Nicky Spinks is a survivor and an inspiration. The 49-year-old farmer from Yorkshire, England, made fell running history last spring by becoming the fastest person to run a Double Bob Graham Round. What is a Double Bob Graham Round? Starting and finishing in the town of Keswick, a standard Bob Graham Round involves a 66-mile circuit of 42 summits in the Lake District with 27,000 feet of elevation gain, all to be completed in less than 24 hours. Nicky did it all twice—she took over an hour off the previous record set in 1979 by Roger Baumeister, who was there in person to support Nicky during her attempt. Now the story of Nicky’s incredible life and record-breaking success is being told in a new film called “Run Forever.” The film will premiere at the Nov. 17-20 Kendal Mountain Festival in the UK. In the meantime you can check out the inspiring trailer above. Read more about Nicky here and the Inov-8 MudClaw 300 trail shoes she wore on her record-breaking endeavor.
