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.
116 MILES. 57,000FT ASCENT. 48 PEAKS. TARGET TIME: SUB-48 HOURS.
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.
