Race Description

The Mourne Mountain Marathon is a classic 2 day navigation and endurance event for teams of two. At the start of each day teams are presented with a course as a list of control markers which are identified by 6-figure map references. They must visit each control in the prescribed order but may choose their own routes between them. A feature of the event is the overnight camp in the mountains at which all teams must be self-sufficient with everything being carried throughout the two days of competition.The camp is basic but the views and the camraderie are always great.
