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

It is the premier event in the 2019 British Mountain Marathon Championship and takes place in the Far Eastern Fells of the Lake District in 2019.

This challenging event takes place on the last weekend of January each year and like most regular mountain marathons, is a pairs-only 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 unlimited hot drinks for everyone as they finish.
