    E81. The Long Journey to the Summer Spine Race with Sabrina Pace-Humphreys

    Sabrina Pace-Humphreys is an ultra-runner, a mother and grandmother, a founding member of Black Trail Runners, and now the published author of 'Black Sheep: A story of Rural racism, Identity and Hope'.  Sabrina will shortly be toeing the line at the Summer Spine Race 2022.
    In an episode, Will and Sabrina chat through her whole journey from starting out as a runner in 2009, to her first contact with ultra-running, the creation, and reason behind the creation, of Black Trail Runners, and her preparations for the Summer Spine Race. 
    We learn what helped motivated Sabrina to begin this running journey and why she thinks so many others could benefit from starting on a fitness journey of their own.

    Everything Endurance is back after a busy few months of putting on epic events. Will returns with a guest who has made a habit out of appearing on podiums of high profile Ultra races over the last year or so, the indomitable Simon Roberts. Simon Roberts spent the race-free period of the pandemic honing his skills, doing his homework, and generally transforming himself into a race-winning-machine.
    In this episode he talks Will through his first footsteps into ultra running and how about his experience of winning the Dragon's Back, The Montane Spine Challenger - North, and the Cheviot Goat.
    We also introduce our new charity partner: https://www.bigmoosecharity.co/

    The Long Journey to the 'Double Lon Las' with Tom Garrod

    The Long Journey to the 'Double Lon Las' with Tom Garrod

    On 14th October, Tom Garrod started the 253mile Lon Las Cymru Ultramarathon, a grueling race from the north to the south of Wales.  When he reached the finish line, he turned around and raced back to the start alone - all to raise money for Kings College Hospital in memory of Mark Thornberry, a well-known fellow ultra-runner who sadly passed from liver cancer last year.
    17 years earlier, Tom was diagnosed with stage IV testicular cancer and given a 5% chance of survival.  In this episode, we hear all about his story of defying those odds and the journey afterward that led him into his amazing achievements as an ultra-athlete and his efforts to raise awareness of testicular cancer.
