Nikki Spinks – Double attempt on Ramsay Round. 116 miles / 57000 ft of ascent and 48 peaks in 48 hours! Good luck

The inspirational Nicky Spinks is aiming to become the first runner to complete a 116-mile Double Ramsay Round in the Scottish mountains.

*** Follow Nicky’s progress on her Double Ramsay Round attempt via this LIVE TRACKER ***

The Ramsay Round is a 24-hour challenge which sees mountain runners attempt a 58-mile circuit over 24 summits, including the UK’s highest, Ben Nevis. The total ascent that must be scaled is 28,500ft – almost the same height as Mount Everest.


No runner has recorded a Double Ramsay Round of any kind. If Nicky is to become the first she will have to run 116 miles, including a monstrous 57,000ft of ascent, and twice summit each of the 24 peaks (23 of which are classed as Munros – Scottish mountains over 3,000ft). She aims to do all that in under 48 hours.

Cancer survivor Nicky, who will start the challenge wearing inov-8’s new MUDCLAW G 260 running shoes with graphene grip, is no stranger to such epic challenges. In 2016 she became the fastest person to run a 132-mile Double Bob Graham Round (the English mountain equivalent of the Ramsay Round), clocking 45hrs 32mins and making headline new.

Nikki is on the route now follow her on her tracker !

All the best Nicky!
