NASS becomes charity partner of Spine Race

We are delighted to announce that NASS will be the official charity partner of MONTANE® Spine® Fusion and Flare events in June 2017.

New for 2017, the MONTANE Flare and Fusion races are summer versions of the iconic MONTANE Spine Race - a 268 mile, non-stop winter challenge encompassing the entire Pennine Way. The trail crosses some of the most beautiful and at times difficult terrain found in England, including; the Peak District, Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland National Park, Hadrian’s Wall and the Cheviots; finishing at the Scottish Borders. 

Set over seven days, the non-stop ultra-marathon can be tackled through combination of jogging and long-distance walking through some of Britain’s most spectacular vistas and incredible areas of outstanding national beauty.

NASS Chief Executive Debbie Cook says, "We are really excited to partner with the MONTANE Spine Fusion and Flare events. Our partnership will help to raise vital awareness of AS.'

Keep your eyes peeled in the New Year for more information about our exciting new partnership!
