None of the teams finished the C or B courses but there was a finishing rate of 40% on the A and 80% on the Elite. The A course was won by Kevin Saville and Stephen Martin whilst the Elite course was won by Alex Pilkington and Kim Collison. The Score course had a much higher finishing rate as competitors could finish whenever they wished but the top teams were well ahead of the pack, with Tom Davies and George Neville-Jones winning.

What the statistics don’t tell you was the high degree of mountain sense that the competitors displayed. Many decided to cut their night short and head back to the finish early, whilst some decided to camp on the fells and finish on Sunday. Without exception everyone arriving back at the Muncaster Castle Event Centre was in good spirits and had stories to share of the “worst weather ever”. Marmot Dark Mountains promised to be a very serious test of competitors all round mountain craft and Saturday night certainly lived up to that expectation. The fact that there were no significant hypothermia problems, despite everyone arriving back wet and cold, speaks volumes about the sound mountain judgment each team displayed.
