A mountain marathon is a test of your navigation (how efficiently you find the checkpoints), your fitness (how quickly you travel between the checkpoints) and mountain craft (being self sufficient in the mountains for the weekend, typically involving a remote Overnight Camp).
MountainMarathon.com is the home of Mountain Marathon events, and through this website the British Mountain Marathon Championship is organised.
At their heart, Mountain Marathons have a strong ethos of participant responsibility in the mountains. They can be a life-affirming experience that many participants return to again and again.
Whatever the level you choose to participate at – from novice through to Elite – you can be assured of a memorable challenge that is built around mountain navigation, running, lightweight camping and self-sufficiency.
Our aim is to inspire and motivate greater participation in Mountain Marathon events and we look forward to seeing you out there.
