Double Ultra Rounds with Nicky Spinks
Show Notes

When it comes to fell running, Nicky Spinks is nothing short of a legend. She's gone from holding the female record for the Bob Graham (BG) Round, a 66 mile route across 42 Lake District fells that must be completed inside 24 hours to, after recovering from cancer, setting records for the Bob Graham Double; yes 2 laps inside 48 hours! Since then she has become the only person to do either a Paddy Buckley Double or a Charlie Ramsay Double, two laps of the the Welsh and Scottish equivalents, as well as competing in the infamous Barkley Marathon.

In this interview I wanted to try to understand how she can run such phenomenal distances across such difficult terrain in record times.
