"Steeped in history, this National Trail chases along the mountain tops along the rugged backbone of England and offers 268 miles of the finest upland walking in England. A once in a lifetime experience."
The Montane Spine Race covers the entire Pennine Way in winter. The overall course record was set in January 2019 by fell running phenom & nursing mother Jasmine Paris in 83h12m23s: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-46906365
Josh Perry alerted us to an early unsupported FKT on the Pennine Way. In 1989, Robin Prince completed in 4days 8hrs and 39mins. Reported on in that September's issue of Fellrunner Magazine (see p.35). As best we can tell this is still (August 2020) the unsupported FKT
Anyone know of a self supported record here?
The unsupported (not self supported) record appears to be Robin Prince in a time of 4 days 8 hours and 39 minutes, as reported in the September 1989 issue of Fellrunner Magazine.
For reference, Robin Prince's record is mentioned here (search PDF for 'Robin Prince'):
Any male self-supported or unsupported FKT would need to beat this time.
Forgot to say - thanks to Josh for this info!
