This weekend will see hundreds of runners taking part in the 52nd OMM. The location of the race is kept secret up until few weeks of the start date (hence coastal scotland on the event logo).
Runners from across the globe will be testing their fitness and navigation skills in the hills of Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park. During this crueling event teams of two are issued a map on day one of their chosen course, they then plan a route to visit the marked checkpoints spread across the 400Km2 course area and finish at the overnight wild camp. Day two they receive a new map and choose a second route back to the event centre. The teams who visit the most checkpoints in the quickest time are the winners.
We wish all the competitors the best of luck, if you wish to follow the event you can see live results here
