Thanks so much to Montane Spine Race director and co-founder Phillip Hayday-Brown for taking time out of his at the moment very stressful pre-race schedule to share with us the latest news on the 2021 event. 

Will the January government guidelines allow the 2021 Montane Spine Race to take place at all? If so what precautions and restrictions will there be on this 268 mile race along the Pennine Way to keep runners, marshals and the medical team safe? What about the finish line at the Border Hotel just over the border in Scotland?

We also cover more light topics like how and when the Spine Race was created, what it takes to put on such an epic event in the middle of the mountains in winter, Phillip’s best and worst memories as RD, and what drink you can buy him in the pub to celebrate a successful Spine race!
