Marmot Dark Mountains™ takes the classic two-day mountain marathon format and gives it a new… darker twist. Rather than two days of running with an overnight camp in between, we pack everything into one winter’s night!

This challenging event takes place on the last weekend of January each year (28th / 29th January in 2017) and like most regular mountain marathons, is a pair’s event.

The event is based on the usual mountain marathon format with Elite, A, B, C, Long and Short Score Courses.

Starting on the Saturday evening, the longest courses set off first for dusk-to-dawn racing. The shorter courses set off later in the evening with the aim of most competitors finishing within an hour or so of each other the following Sunday morning. This makes for an exciting finale as all the competitors converge on the finish as dawn breaks.

Courses remaining open until 1100 on the Sunday so there is sufficient time for everyone to complete their course and share in the success. There will a hearty breakfast and hot drinks for everyone as they finish. Competitors may also sleep at the event centre, which we recommend, before traveling home.

Entries close Monday 23th January 2017 or when full.
