Nicky Spinks and the Tor de Geants race

Elite ultra runner Nicky Spinks tells us everything about the 200 mile race through the Italian Alps

Summary

Traversing over 300km of mountainous terrain, the Tor de Geants (Giants' Trail) is an epic running race in the Italian Alps. Joe was lucky enough to talk to the legendary Nicky Spinks about her third place finish at the 2021 event. Here we hear Nicky's top tips for the event, and talk about sleeping, gear, strategies, and why she loves the race so much. As a bonus, we got to hear what Nicky thinks about parkrun!
