In issue 17 of Trail Running magazine (out now in the shops) there is an excellent feature about the January 2013 inaugural Marmot Dark Mountains™ race.
The race was held during that period of poor weather and heavy snow, which affect much of the country last winter, and the competitors’ descriptions of their experiences on the hill are fairly mind blowing. Even if you don’t want to enter the race, it makes for compelling reading.
The January 2014 race has now passed the 50% full mark and entries are still rolling in. If you would like to take part please enter early to avoid disappointment!
