MONTANE Winter Spine Sprint

The Montane Spine Sprint race is our shortest challenge but has all the intensity of any Spine race experience. It’s a taste of what it takes to move on to the Challengers, or full Spine Races. The distance is 46 miles and the time limit is 18 hours. You will start in Edale and finish in Hebden Bridge. From appearances alone 18 hours looks like ample time, however, this challenging and technical section of the Pennine Way is a physically and psychologically demanding route that demands concentration, good physical fitness, resolve and respect.

The Montane Spine Sprint is an ‘entry-level’ challenge that will give you a taste of what it takes to move on to the Challenger and full spine races.

The distance is 46 miles and the time limit is a generous 18 hours, you will start in Edale and finish in Hebden Bridge. There are no checkpoints on the route but there will be roadside welfare checks and support from our Spine team.

From appearances alone 18 hours sounds ample time to complete the distance, however, this challenging and technical section of the Pennine Way is a physically and psychologically demanding route that demands concentration, good physical fitness, resolve and respect.

You can expect to experience extreme weather, storm force winds, snow, extreme ice, bogs, fog, hail, mud and almost anything else you can think of!

There is very little hand-holding on this race. We expect you to travel with a degree of self-sufficiency and skill which sets this race apart from others. Why? You should never embark on an adventure of this magnitude without the appropriate knowledge and skill to make yourself safe in a time of need. There is nothing more personally reassuring than being secure in your own abilities. That said, we still attach a GPS tracker to you with an emergency button just in case!

The MONTANE® Spine® Team will support your herculean efforts by being there when you really need us. We have an event safety team who will support you on the course, baggage transfers to the finish and an excellent medical team provided by Exile Medics.’
