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.
Mountain Run were asked by Nordic Walking UK to provide some courses for their Instructors, to give them a better understanding of map & compass navigation, as a base & back up to navigation by GPS and other devices.
I had an interview with Ian Corless, from Talk Ultra, just after the Berghaus Trail Chase. In conjunction with Ian & MountainRun, this Basic Navigation article was produced.
Scratch was an amazing runner, without him the MountainRun concept would not have been born, so I only feel it right to pay homage to him. Scratch has been one of my best running partners ever.
The Chase was on during the weekend of the 16th & 17th of August in the North Yorkshire Moors....
MountainRun were the course planners for the first Marmot24, held over the weekend of the 2nd & 3rd of August.
MountainRun were out in full force on the weekend of the Lakes 100 & 50 mile races. Each year for the last 4 years we have run the Buttermere Check Point, this year we looked after Ambleside as well.
A course designed specifically towards the SLMM & other Mountain Marathons on the circuit.
