Mike Churchyard – The Spine Race

Next month, Mike Churchyard from Uckfield is taking on the ‘Spine Race’, which is described as Britain’s most brutal race, covering the 268-mile Pennine Way National Trail – the equivalent of ten marathons inside seven days, over gruelling terrain and in extreme weather conditions.

Mike came in to talk about the race with David Eggleston on Saturday Sport and to give an update on how his training has been progressing.

Mike is raising funds for the Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance charity. You can support Mike in this most extraordinary of challenges by visiting:
