Jasmine Paris smashes the 2019 Montane Spine Race record set by Eoin Keith by reaching Kirk Yetholm 83:12:23. Having set records on the Bob Graham and the Ramsay Round, Jasmine was one of the favourites from the start and has proved to be a formidable athlete again holding off Eugeni Roselló Solé after running together for some time. Jasmine gradually pulled away after the Alston checkpoint, 194 miles into the route building an 8-9 mile lead. She is the first woman to win the race.

The 268 mile Pennine Way record was set by Eoin Keith (IRL) 95:17 in 2016 and he’s currently in second place with about 30 miles to go. John Knapp is not that far behind while Gwynn Stokes is a dozen miles behind John.
