What a weekend for women’s running! On Saturday, the incredible fell running legend, Nicky Spinks, took on the Joss Naylor challenge, running 48 miles and summiting 17,000 feet of Lake District ascent to smash the previous best women’s time by an hour. Not a bad way to celebrate your 50th birthday! Congrats Nicky on setting a new all-time record of 11 hours 2 minutes. Woohoo!
Then on Sunday, Kenya’s Mary Keitany broke the women-only marathon record with a time of 2hrs.17.
