This time tomorrow registration will be well underway and many of our competitors will be up at the start, marking up their maps
Largest Entry Field For Many Years
We’ve a massive total of 184 teams entered this year, which is one of the largest in recent years. Last year’s Elite champion, Philip Vokes returns teamed with Ben Windsor, another regular Moune Marathon high flyer. Philip has enjoyed great success this year with many fine results including winning the top category in the Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon.
They will be challenged by the formidable pairing of Shane Lynch, current Denis Rankin Round record holder and current Northern Ireland mountain running champion, Adam Cunningham.
It’s good to welcome back our Swedish friends Pernilla Berg and Tomas Albinsson who have produced some great runs in previous years. Definitely not past it are veteran’s Billy Reed and Paul Mahon who should run well.
Results, Prize Giving & Final Instructions
Many thanks to our lead sponsor Mac In A Sac who has come on board this year to replace Jackson Sports whose owner, Dion has retired. They will have a stall at the event so you can try on their waterproof jackets and other outdoor gear.
Good luck to all our competitors and and see you bright and early on Saturday morning. Fingers crossed for some dry weather!
