The OMM Mountain Marthon Skills Day will develop all the necessary skills to get the edge on your competition for advanced tactical racing. Let your mates see your heels, rather than you see theirs!!
A professionally run course to gain extra skills to improve your mountain marathon running.
The course will entail roughly 2 hours of theory, based indoors where we can all discuss around a table with tea and coffee. After a break for more refreshments we will then head out on to the local fells for some practical learning and navigation training using real MM control kites using maps supplied by Mountain Run of either mock MM maps or real MM maps depending on the day.
We'll have plenty of fun, chats, learning new skills, mixed weather and great MM terrain.
Come prepared with an open mind, the correct clothing and equipment, lunch and snacks and plenty of smiles.
Date: Saturday 12th October 2019
