Event Description

Marmot Dark Mountains™ takes the classic two-day mountain marathon format and gives it a dark twist. Rather than two days of running with an overnight camp in between, everything is packed into one winter’s night! The event is renowned for wintry weather and as the supreme mountain navigation challenge.

This challenging event takes place on the last weekend of January each year and, like most regular mountain marathons, is a pairs event.

The Event is based on a mountain marathon format with Elite, A, B, C, Long and Short Score courses.

Starting on the Saturday evening, the longest courses set off first for dusk-to-dawn racing. The shorter courses set off later in the evening with the aim of most competitors finishing within an hour or so of each other the following Sunday morning. This makes for an exciting finale as all the competitors converge on the finish as dawn breaks.
