Featuring Shelli Gordon running the Spine Race
Shelli Gordon owns the running shop 'Lets Run' in North Yorkshire which she set up with her partner Tony in 2017. Tony very sadly and with no warning, took his own life in 2018. This is Shelli’s story of how she ran the 268 Spine Race in the depths of water along the length of the Pennines in Tony Holland’s memory. Not only did Shelli complete the Spine but she has also raised over £30,000 for CALM in the process. Now more than ever, we all need to spread the word that its ok to not be ok and to not only get more men talking but anyone is suffering and needs some help.

A big thank you to Beta Outdoor Sports for allowing us to share Shelli’s story and the wonderful people at Ultimate Direction, Injinji and Kahtoola who sponsored the film and helped Shelli on her journey.
