Marmot24™ combines the very best elements of the predominantly British mountain marathon phenomenon with the most exciting aspects of the more international, 24-hour rogaining events. The result is a stunning new event format that was launched to widespread acclaim in 2014. With mountain running and navigation at the heart of the event, competitors have up to 24-hours to visit as many checkpoints as possible on a score format course. Competitors are able to compete solo, in teams of two, or in four-person tag teams.
2017 entries will open soon
The Marmot24™ Event Centre is typically right in the heart of the competition area with checkpoints scattered 360° around allowing maximum route choice so that competitors can choose to pass through the event centre during the race, with the solo and two-person teams making the choice whether to rest, or eat, whilst the four-person tag teams can tag-in their team mates; swapping tired runners for fresh runners. The event centre is a hub of activity with a large marquee, race control, catering and camping for competitors and supporters. Supporters are actively encouraged and they can provide help for the competitors (cook meals for example) at the event centre.
