An evening with Nicky Spinks: BG film, discussion and Q&A - 2nd performance
In April 2015 Farmer, fell runner and cancer survivor Nicky Spinks set out to beat her own women's record of 18 hours 12 minutes for the Bob Graham Round, the legendary Lake District fell running endurance challenge. The film follows both the literal and metaphorical highs and lows of her record attempt.
Following the film, Nicky will share her more recent experience of the ‘BG2’: the double Bob Graham, which she completed in an all-comers record of 45.5 hours. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and take advantage of the HEART café.
Headingley Enterprise & Arts Centre, Headingley on Friday 12 August 2016
Doors Open at 7:00PM
Starts at 7:30PM
Ticket Price: £5.00*

Thanks to all who supported and attended the Nicky Spinks film and Q&A nights in Headingley recently and to those who donated raffle and auction prizes (and bought them). A special mention to Sara Demaine for hosting the second evening. In sum, we raised c. £700, which was split between the Headingley Enterprise and Arts Centre (HEART) www.heartcentre.org.uk/#&panel1-2 (our venue), the cancer charity, Odyssey, that Nicky supports: www.odyssey.org.uk/ and the Chevin Socialites who are fundraising in order to ‘keep the kettle boiling’ to provide 80,000 brews a year to haematology patients at Jimmy’s. Two great evenings in which Pudsey Pacers was centre stage. If you didn’t manage to get there, here’s a link to Nicky’s film: tv.thebmc.co.uk/videos/nicky-spinks-bob-graham-round/
