Irish runner Eoin Keith wins the Spine Race
For those who haven't come across it, the Spine Race is a 268 mile hill run up the Pennine Way in Northern England, run in January, so usually in foul weather, making it one of the world's toughest ultra marathons. This year was the 10th anniversary so a star-studded cast took part, but nearly all failed to finish! The exception was Eoin Keith from Cork, who just took it steady and ran his own race, finishing as the winner by a fair distance, his second win (he's also won the summer version). Eoin is an absolute legend and by all accounts a true gent. Shout out too for Liam Vines from Wicklow, who has just finished with more than a day to spare. Anyone who even gets to take part in the Spine is a genuinely tough cookie.
