UKC/UKH film 'Run Forever' - featuring ultra runner Nicky Spinks - scooped the Judge's Special Prize and came 3rd in the People's Choice Award at the Kendal Mountain Festival this weekend. The film follows the story of Nicky's successful 132-mile double Bob Graham Round around the Lakeland fells in May, ten years after being diagnosed with, and recovering from, breast cancer.
Director Nick Brown said "'It was an immense privilege to stand up on stage with Nicky to accept the Judge's Special Prize, especially from such an experienced panel. It was also great to see Roger Baumeister there who did the first double Bob Graham. There's a lovely moment in the film where he talks about not winning any awards for doing these sports, so it was nice for both him and Nicky to get some recognition for their amazing achievements. It was also fantastic working with Lee from inov-8 and without their support it would be impossible to make films like these."
The film will be available to watch online from Friday here
