Marmot Dark Mountains™ follows the usual two-day mountain marathon format but condenses it into one winter’s night. 

Elite, A, B, C and Score categories set off in pairs on a staggered start, the longer courses followed by the shorter ones, all hoping to converge back at the event centre as dawn breaks. 

Live GPS tracking enables the organisers, alongside friends, family, and any other keen followers, to track the progress of the competitors through the night.

Marmot Dark Mountains™ has something for everyone; the Elite course to challenge the most seasoned of competitor through to the C and short score courses which would be suitable for a first timer (with suitable navigational experience).

We look forward to welcoming both new and old competitors to the Forest of Bowland in January 2019.
