Event Preparations… The Countdown Begins

30th Jul 2014

Today the first controls are being placed on the fells and in the coming three days there will be a team of four people placing all the controls for Marmot24™.

This morning the SI stations (the timing boxes), the stakes and marker kites were divided up into four neat piles before being distributed to the team placing the controls. 

Above: SI stations... Reporting for duty! All present and correct!
Above: The division of the kit. Dave has the most (his pile is top left) as he'll be doing three consecutive days on the hill… and he did the Lakeland 50 on the weekend!
Above: Race Planner, Charlie Sproson scans over the finished competition maps and wonders whether it is possible for competitors to visit all the controls....
Above: We have also taken delivery of the fantastic Marmot24™ t-shirts, which feature a combination of embroidery and heat sealed embossing on organic cotton. They look great!
Above: Finally, here is a sneaky peak at the category winners Marmot24™ trophies…. The big overall winner’s trophy will stay hidden for now!
