Race Description

OMM – The Original Mountain Marathon 29th/30th October 2011 Central Scotland – Registration is Cultybraggan Camp Comrie Perth

Still the UK’s premier event to test teamwork, self-reliance, endurance, outdoor and navigational skills. The reputation of the event is worldwide and every year we have entrants from all over the world..

The ethos of the event is to be totally self-reliant, in the wilds, carrying all equipment, no outside support and without GPS or cell phone. Your first source of help is your partner and if you retire you are responsible for getting yourselves back to base. Any teams not arriving at the overnight camp are assumed to have camped safely. In these days of 24/7 contact and total support this is an event to test and indeed help develop teamwork and self-reliance.

NB. Successful completion of an approved OMM training course is considered sufficient to fulfil the minimum terms of the ‘mountain experience’ section of an OMM event.

ENTRY COSTS: TEAM OF 2: £110.00 (£55 per person) (inc.vat)

Event entry includes:

•Bespoke laminated map for each day
•Free camping & use of event facilities for the weekend
•Coach transport to starts on Saturday
•Choice of 8 classes offering different lengths and severity
•Loan of electronic punches for use over the weekend
•Quality courses as a result of experienced planners and controllers, corrected maps and careful landowner negotiations.
•Prizes awarded for ranking and special classes
•Evening Meal
•Free parking for the weekend
Last but not least a well organised event put on by a team of well over a 100 people, many with more than 20 years experience
