Marmot Dark Mountains 2017 Location Reveal

Marmot Dark Mountains sold out in 2016, and with many of the courses already nearly full, the time to enter is NOW - www.marmot-dark-mountains.com Today, we are delighted to announce that Marmot Dark Mountains™ 2017 will be held in the Dufton Fells, The Pennines, with the event based out of Warcop. The area is characterised by exposed high moorland, steep-sided incised valleys and areas of intricate contour detail, and mining curiosities. Certainly, it offers a superb challenge for mountain running and navigation. As in previous years we have planned the courses carefully considering the unique challenges offered by a winter running event held through the night. With two months before the event, we are wondering what kind of winter is waiting for us…
