Nowt to do with the Spine Race but on the subject of Ultra Marathons......

Me and the missus watched a documentary about Fiona Oakes doing the Marathon des Sables last night.

Impressive. This woman should be a national celeb but is virtually unheard of outside of running circles.
I also found this and really rated it. She’s an absolute machine.

There’s a good selection of Ultra and mountaineering documentaries on Prime Video. Including the 2013 Dragons Back movie which is a good way to waste an hour in front of the box.

Are you one of these male feminists?


i got to be honest i can't see the attraction in any sport in which the male athletes are built like sex offenders.
 
This nearly snuck under the wire. John Kelly is attempting to break Mike Hartley's FKT for the Pennine Way this week. Good luck but I just can't see it.

Thanks for that ... I am in lock down but that may enable me to escape , virtually , to The Hills

ETA I see he is going to take a detour to include The Cheviot ... I believe the access track is paved now ...last time I was there it wasn't and I had to cross a bog to get to the Trig Point .

Ditto but I have downloaded the Track Website ... will check regularly .

I think he's being deliberately vague to avoid the groupies.

I would love to see him and Pavel going head to head on a really bad weather winter spine race.

They went head to head in the Berkleys (sp?). Pav didn't complete one lap if I remember rightly?

By my reckoning 65 hrs and 20 mins after this ping would make his target 0452 hrs tomorrow morning?
