The legend that is Nicky Spinks celebrated her 50th Birthday by beating the Joss Naylor Challenge record by an hour. #TeamMountaiNFuel Nicky completed 30 fells, covering 48 miles and climbing 17,000 feet in 11 hours and 2 minutes.
Nicky was met at the finish by the lakeland legend and challenge setter Joss Naylor.
Nicky said, “Thank you to all my family and friends who’ve supported the challenge. A great day out on the fells and fun way to celebrate my half century! Mountain Fuel energy fuel did the trick on the run and then I had the lovely recovery drink to look forward to as I had to trash my quads from fast descending at the end.”
Nicky is fund raising for Odyssey, a charity that helps adults like myself rebuild their lives after cancer – my fund raising page is https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Nicola-SPINKS1 . Odyssey draws on the majesty of the outdoor environment, the Arts, the stimulation of ncertainty and surprise to help cancer patients of all ages and backgrounds regain their confidence and zest for life.
Nicky’s next challenge is this coming weekend in the Innsbruck 85k.
