Mountain Marathons - Ourea Events

Mountain Marathons

 

With either one or two overnight 'camps', all our mountain marathons require navigational skills (they are not way-marked events). Expect mainly off-trail running, except for the GL3D which tends to pick on mainly well trodden sections of the path networks around the Lake District in the easier courses especially. These events take place in mountainous and high moorland areas.
