Spine Challenger Race 2023 - 108 miles

On Saturday 17th June I start the Spine Challenger Race, an ultra-event along the first 108 miles of the Pennine Way. I have to complete this in less than 60 hours.

I very much hope you can support myself and these two great charities.

    Hi John, will be delighted to contribute to your very worthy charities.
    That weekend I will be in France with my mate Guy on the Somme where my grandfather was killed in the Great War . We have made many visits but this year we are taking our bikes for a very different perspective and of course, I’ll have my GPS that you supplied loaded with a couple of routes.
    Very best wishes for the Spine Challenger event, I’m sure you’ll crack it!
    Best regards. Simon
