Thanks to Shane and the Marmot 24 team for organising a challenging but highly rewarding event this weekend in the Lowther hills. Sore feet and smiles.

Awesome event, thanks to Shane, Gary and the whole team. This is what we were up to at sunset yesterday, 3:30am and dawn...

What a weekend that was one of the best days on the hill I've ever had - just stunning. Fantastically well planned...

And what a spot for the event centre ! Doesn't get much better than that :-)

Thanks for an excellent event. Sore legs today, but well worth it. See you again next year!

I’d like to thank you and the team for another first class event. There is no doubt in my mind that you guys are putting on the best run events in the UK. Bar none. Fact. I thought the event itself was epic, the area was terrific as it was genuinely runnable for large sections.

Just want to say that I really enjoyed the experience again this year.

Thanks very much for a brilliant weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing, despite realising that next time sleeping isn't an option and you have to go all night to do well!

Thanks for a great event I thought the organisation was first class and the course planning superb. A fantastic area which was new to me and I had a great day on the hill and strangely enjoyed being by myself!

Marmot24™ 2014

Excellent weekend running at the Marmot24 hr mountain marathon with Scott, finishing 7th. Big thanks to Shane Ohly and his team @ Ourea Events for a outstanding event in tough mountain terrain, not helped with challenging weather conditions. Don't want to see any bracken for a while!!

Thank you Shane, all marshals and support crew for a fantastic and very well organised event, I learnt a lot on this race and will definitely be back next year.
Paul W

I just write to thank you about the race. It was hard, tough, rainy, windy but most of all fantastic, really fantastic! We liked a lot the map, the location of the controls, the fields. It was for sure a hard work you have done there. So, thanks a lot for everything. Many people here in Spain ask us about the pictures. I hope we see each other next year!

Knolls and re-entrants - my favourites!

Sam J

Just to say thanks so much for an awesome event this weekend. I even sort of loved the weather….the course, organisation, and the staff were all fantastic and made the hurty bits worthwhile. Thank you again.
Phil R

Many thanks for the weekend, we had a (mostly) brilliant time, despite being rubbish! It was a great learning curve, so will definitely be back next year to try to improve. There were real high moments - sunset on Latrigg, surreal moments - looking through the windows of Threlkeld pubs seeing normal people on a Saturday night and the odd low moment - wandering around the back of Blencathra in the low cloud and rain looking for a sheepfold (we were in the wrong place!!). So, thank you and your team once again. Hope you all enjoyed it, too and I really hope the event returns next year. Best wishes:-))

Marmot24 was one of the hardest things either of us has tried. We learned a great deal though and are thinking we should give it a go again!...The event was very well organised and I am sure will go from strength to strength - I will certainly be recommending it!
Mandy K

The event this weekend was excellent. We're already looking forward to next year !! 
Laurie & Ali P

Just wanted to drop you a note to say that this was the first kind of event that myself and my running partner Mandy has ever done, we have done endurance things before but not navigational. We had a really good time and thought all the event team did a brilliant job.......thanks to you all. Next time we have decided to do the 24 hour event in which we would run during daylight and then rest between 12 - 4.
Leonora A

Just wanted to add my own praise to the heaps you’ve had already. We had a cracking time even though our finish position and score didn’t exactly set the world alight. We know where we went wrong and will be back next year to put things right. 
Danny C

Many thanks for a great weekend - the team were great and looked after us bedraggled competitors brilliantly before, during and after the race.
