We were all captivated for one week in January watching trackers jump up and down, move up the map and waiting for updates on Facebook so we could live the experience with John.
The MONTANE® Spine® Race is widely regarded as one of the world’s toughest endurance races. A truly epic challenge that tests your physical resilience and mental fortitude. Racing non-stop along the most iconic trail in the UK, experiencing the full intensity and ferocity of the British Winter.
John Stocker won the challenge with the SPINE – well there was never any doubt 🙂 – and finished the race with Helene Dumais from Canada just after 6pm on Saturday night. A total of 268 miles in 153 hours and 29 minutes – WOW, truly inspirational 🙂
Below are some pictures from John’s epic journey with some comments from Facebook, but first some very wise words from John
- The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be
- Let the fire within be stronger than the storm outside
- Slow is steady, steady is smooth, smooth is fast
- Remember dreams do not work unless you do
