Standing for Running, Orienteering, & Camping, the ROC Mountain Marathon™ is a two-day fell running and navigation challenge for solos and pairs with an overnight camp. It takes place in a different mountainous destination in the UK each year and promotes self-sufficiency, adventure, and mountain craft.

Famously relaxed and welcoming, the fun and friendly atmosphere of the ROC Mountain Marathon™ is epitomised by the lack of prescribed start times, the wide spread of prize categories (including Veteran and Super Veteran) and the opportunity for younger competitors (aged 14+) to participate.

The use of GPS Tracking allows anyone, especially friends & family, to follow the event live in real-time and adds significantly to the safety of participants.
