Nicky Spinks

Nicky has 16 years' experience of fell and ultra running, successfully completing ten 24 hour Rounds, breaking several records. She currently holds the record for the Ladies Lakeland 24-hour round, as well as the record for the Double Bob Graham. In racing she prefers long mountainous fell races such as UTMB, L’Échappée Belle (2nd),  Grand Raid Pyrenees (1st twice) and Grand Raid Reunion (4th).  Nicky has more than 25 years experience of beef farming and holds a BA in Business Studies. She successfully balances her unpredictable job with training and racing while determined to enjoy life, especially after her cancer diagnosis in 2006. Nicky can help you train specifically for mountainous ultras and 24-hour rounds, develop your race strategy, improve your race fueling and increase your mental strength. As a certified Coach in Running Fitness (CiRF) with the Fell Running Association Nicky can also assess and work on your uphill and downhill strength. Nicky creates bespoke training plans for races such as the UTMB but she also coaches for shorter or less hilly ultra-marathons. Nicky is happy to work with runners of all levels.
