Jasmin Paris Inov8 Roclite 275 Montane Spine Race Winner

Inov-8 ambassador Jasmin Paris has smashed the 268-mile Montane Spine Race, becoming the first-ever woman to win the race outright and setting a new overall course record. She ran a time of 83hrs 12mins (TBC) to obliterate both the previous mens and women’s course records, wearing the new Inov-8 ROCLITE 275 with Graphene Grip.

The Spine Race, first run in 2012, sees runners complete the full distance of the Pennine Way in winter conditions, carrying their kit throughout and sleeping only when they chose too. It is dubbed ‘Britain’s Most Brutal’ race.

Lee Procter, inov-8 ambassador team manager, said: “All of us here at inov-8 are so proud of Jasmin. She is not a professional, full-time athlete, but instead a down-to-earth, modest mum-of-one with an incredible talent and phenomenal strength, both physically and mentally.

“What she has achieved in this race in beating everyone of both sexes, setting a new overall course record and expressing milk at checkpoints for her 14-month-old baby is one of the greatest stories in the history of ultra-running as a sport.”

For one of the world’s toughest endurance races, Jasmin had the ROCLITE 275 in her arsenal, with graphene-enhanced grip. By infusing the planet’s strongest material (graphene) into the rubber Inov-8 have created outsoles that are 50% harder wearing, without compromising on the sticky traction our rubber is renowned for. The ROCLITE 275, with its 6mm studs, is perfect for running on diverse or unpredicatable terrain, with sections of soft and hard ground.
