In 2019, inov-8 ambassador and breast cancer survivor Nicky Spinks attempted to become the first-ever woman to complete The Barkley Marathons - the world's toughest ultra-running race. This film tells the story of Nicky, and her fellow female runners, as they battle treacherous terrain, wild weather and the twisted mind of Barkley Marathons organiser, Lazarus Lake.

 "I was beginning to think I was becoming a bit of a liability. I was so near to the edge, shivering, that your brain stops working properly, so it’s hard. I couldn’t get any food out as my hands were so cold. "

It’s an intimate film that offers an insight into Nicky’s emotions, as well as showcasing an event that is both legendary and secretive in equal measures.

As a viewer I was left in awe at the magnitude and severity of the task.
