In conjunction with Keswick Mountain Festival we are giving sound advice for runners as the nights get even longer & the temperature starts to plummet. Photo Credits: Marmot Dark Mountains/Ian Corless, MountainRun & Barney Whiteside
Charlie & Chris Baynham-Hughes competed in the inaugural OMM 2014 & came away with a 6th place in the Elite Class
Last month I had another interview with Ian Corless from Talk Ultra, this is the follow up article to support that interview.
The OMM is one of the hardest Mountain Marathons of the year, Mountain Run held a specific OMM Skills day to bring runners up to scratch on all the skills they need to complete.
This years RMM was held on the South/Eastern Fells of Cumbria. We used the Shap Fells, south of the summit, including Bannisdale, High Borrowdale & Longsleddale, it stretched out to the west, taking in Kentmere & the eastern side of Troutbeck. We reached as north as the shores of Hawes Water & as south as Potter Fell, using the filet of land in between Kentmere & Long Sleddale (Skeggles Water, Brunt Knott, Gurnal Dubs & Potter Fell). There was quite bit of new land, in amongst land that has been used before.
MountainRun were the course planners for the first Marmot24, held over the weekend of the 2nd & 3rd of August.
A course designed specifically towards the SLMM & other Mountain Marathons on the circuit.
I've been pretty busy with race planning over the last few months.
