11th January 2016

Completing the 108 mile Spine Challenger race along the Pennine Way this weekend in 29 hours and 25 minutes, Tom Hollins won the race and beat last year's record time by 28 minutes. Beth Pascall was the first woman to cross the line just an hour after Hollins, 12 hours faster than the previous women's record.

The Spine Challenger race is run from Edale in the Peak District to Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales, over 108 miles of the Pennine Way. Competitors were faced with rain and overnight snow triggered by falling temperatures.

The Spine Race over the full 268 miles of the Pennine Way is still underway, with competitors making their way to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders by the end of this week.
