I did this in 2017 and loved it. Well, I loved almost all of it apart from the first 16 miles of the first day along the Tissington Trail. The second half of the day it got considerably more interesting and the best bit was heading towards the best pub in Edale - The Old Nag's Head! The race HQ was at the village hall in Edale where you were welcomed warmly with pizza and good cheer from the other runners, many of whom were camping in the hall that night. The second day along the Pennine Way is a joy from the start, although I was getting mighty annoyed at the never-ending reservoirs towards the end as I was desperately trying to stay ahead of the next woman closing in behind me! The route is fabulous, great organisation by the team who look after the Spine runners and I would definitely do it again.

A good intro to multiday racing. Day 1 starts with an easy and fast 30k on old railway lines and lanes followed by some ankle-challenging rocky woodland and then a bit of open hill country through to Mam Tor and a sharp drop to the finish in Edale. Pizza at the finish and plenty of places to stay in Edale. Day 2 follows the Pennine Way to Marsden, so more elevation, more time relatively high up and more technical ground, but only a very few properly steep climbs, so almost all runnable. Pizza at the finish. Overall, Day 1 is fast, Day 2 takes a bit more concentration but together they make for a good weekend out. Organisation is very easy-going, navigation fairly straightforward (as long as you start looking at the map while you still know where you are).
