Nicki Lygo – "I'm not part of this whole ultrarunning shebang, really. I'm an infiltrator."
Nicki joins Ally Beaven to share all she's learned tailing some of the biggest names in ultrarunning up and down the Pennine Way, both during the Spine Race and John Kelly and Damian Hall's summer record attempts. A medical doctor and incorrigible Pennine Way through hiker, Nicki's unusual perspective on the sport means she has many insights to offer, from gastrointestinal problems to the power of the Lightning McQueen duvet.
Ally Beaven is a Highlands based hill and ultra runner with a zero percent success rate on the Big Rounds in winter. He is also the author of Broken, a book which tells the stories of the remarkable summer of 2020 when race cancellations and travel restrictions led to an avalanche of long distance running records all over the UK.
