Last January, as we started to plan our West Highland Way trip and first ultra-marathon, we discovered the Spine Race. The Spine Race is along the entire length of the 216 mile Pennine Way from Edale to Kirk Yetholm, in Winter. We followed the competitors online each day and was left awed and inspired.
After completing the WHW we decided we were ready to attempt the Pennine Way. The following September we planned a week of walking and camping from Edale in the Peak District to Malham Cove in the Yorkshire Dales.
