Spine Challenger North - 160 miles - 2024

The Montane Summer Spine Challenger North is a non-stop, 160-mile race along the Pennine Way from Hardraw to Kirk Yetholm.

After completing the 109-mile 'Spine Challenger South' last year in 52 hours I have now stepped up to this event for 2024.

I am raising money for two great charities (please let's try and make the donations to both causes as even as possible) -

1. Hospice Care North Northumberland

2. Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue
