Mike Churchyard – The Spine Race

Endurance athlete Mike Churchyard from Uckfield is taking on the ‘Spine Race’, which is described as Britain’s most brutal race.

The race covers the 268-mile Pennine Way National Trail – the equivalent of ten marathons inside seven days, over gruelling terrain and in the most extreme of weather conditions in the middle of January!

Mike joined David Eggleston on last week’s Saturday Sport to talk about this most demanding of endurance races.
