Irish runners in the Spine Race
Two Irish runners are doing well in the Montane Spine Race, which started on sunday morning. It's 268 miles up the Pennine Way, unsupported, in January, so a real toughie. Eoin Keith from Cork is currently leading after about 120 miles, while Carol Morgan from Dublin is leading woman, about 10 miles further back (think she's about 7th overall). Both are the current title holders. The runners can be live tracked at http://live.thespinerace.com/
Update: They are now getting waist deep snowdrifts and 70kph winds. Eoin is 2nd, having turned back briefly to pick up a pair of snowshoes. Carol is joint 5th and still leading woman. They both feature in the daily video update released last night.
Update update (!) Eoin has just dropped out, saying "I didn't want to cause a safety problem". Conditions are truly atrocious.
