What are you runners/adventurers waiting for?

Written by Fiona January 19 2009

Word has it that the Highlander Mountain Marathon is filling up fast. So if you haven’t entered this brilliant event then you’d better get your finger out. Th event is Scotland’s “more remote” answer to the OMM and the LAMM and is quickly gaining a reputation for being smart, safe and well-organised.

The event takes place on April 18/19 so it’s a great early season challenge and because there are so many classes it’s open to a wide range of adventurers.
From the mouth of a competitor last year: “Brilliantly organised, fantastic scenery, amazing courses and a fabulous overnight campsite plus Ceilidh. I know where I’ll be planning to spend my Easter hols in the next few years. The HMM is simply unique.”
The Highlander is part of the adventure race portfolio of Hands On Events, which is also behind the famously tough Strathpuffer24 and the legendary Bealach Mor cycling challenge.
Go on, you know you want to…
