Time is running out if you want to enter the OMM (Original Mountain Marathon), being held in the Black Mountains, a short hop away over the Severn Bridge in late October. With no Long O this year, it's the longest adventure race available locally (19 Aug: event now sold out)
Advance notice for local competitors:
The 51st Original Mountain Marathon is coming to your area.
Every year the event changes location. A 50 year tradition means we don't release the location immediately. Next week is the time we normally release the location.
The race is already nearly full. Once we release the location these places will go within a couple of days. We like to give local competitors advanced notice as it's great to have a strong local presence at the event.
About the OMM:
The Original Mountain Marathon was created in 1968 to give those who love the mountains an opportunity to test their abilities.
The 2 day event combines elements of Ultra running, fell running & route finding with an overnight wild camp.
The UK’s biggest mountain race has shaped the UK outdoor community for 50 years. Since 1968 the UK’s greatest running legends, product creators & influential people have stood on the start line. In October 2000 competitor will gather again for the 51st event.
Please can you make your members aware. It would be great to have a strong local presence at this year’s event.
