Grand To Grand – Stage 6 (the last one!)

Team Skins GB all completed the epic Grand to Grand Ultra – here’s news of the final stage.

56 hours later….

170 miles across wild sand dunes, rock formations, cliffs and ravines later, having carried 12kg every day and survived temperatures of 50 degrees and climbs of 1,600m, our team, Team Skins GB, have completed the Grand To Grand Ultra. Congratulations Stuart, David, Kate and Chris.

Kate Eversole was 51st home on stage 6 to finish incredibly overall as 12th female and 44th out of everyone in a sensational time of 56 hours and 46 minutes.
