The 54th OMM sees us heading back to Eryri (Snowdonia) for the first time in over 30 years.
Age 16 & over
Based just outside Bethesda there is no shortage of steep hills, rocky descents and rough ground to get lost amongst this October. The OMM is designed to test your abilities in the mountains. Anyone can get up Scafell Pike on a sunny day, but can you make good decisions when the clag comes in, visibility has gone, you’re tired, you’re wet, cold & there’s no paths to follow? Held at the end of October to guarantee bad weather. To compete you’ll need a team mate, mountain experience & dogged resilience. It’s all about decision making, what kit you’ll need, what route to take, how hard to push & what to do when you get lost… which you will. It’s not easy, at times soul destroying, but the experience is unmissable!
This event is part of Original Mountain Marathon.
