Cosmic Hillbashers are proud to present a Nicky Spinks weekend on the 14th and 15th October.
On Saturday 14th October, Nicky will be presenting a talk on her running career at Aberdeen University and on Sunday 15th, will be holding an ultra marathon training session near Banchory, Aberdeenshire.
Further details and links to ticket sales are posted below.
We are pleased to announce the visit of Nicky Spinks to Aberdeen in October. Nicky is an ultra-running phenomenon in the fells having completed all the classic challenges in the UK - the Bob Graham, Paddy Buckley and Ramsay Round - all as double rounds and she is the current overall double Bob Graham record holder. She continues to compete at the highest level in fell racing and has also taken part in the famously eccentric and very challenging Barkley marathon event in the U.S. She continues to work as a farmer in Yorkshire and has overcome serious illness and injuries during her long career.
We would like to invite you to join us for what should be an unforgettable evening with Nicky as she tells us about some of her fantastic achievements.
The evening will be based around Nicky's talk along with a question and answer session. It will take place at the main lecture theatre at the McRoberts Building, University of Aberdeen, doors open at 7pm, for a 7.30 start.
All profits from the event will be going to Nicky's chosen charity, Odyssey

This sounds great! Any plans or possibility to video the talk and make it available as a buy/ rent webinar (eg using Vimeo) to raise some extra funds for Nicky and allow access for people who can't get there?
Thank you, we're all excited about it too. Think it might be a sell out for both events but still a few tickets left🙂. If this is a success, there might be a couple more future speakers in the pipeline 😃.
Will ask about filming for Vimeo, see what Nicky says.....
