For anyone who ever thought they might fancy a run out in the fabled OMM, the two-day mountain marathon every summer but feared they weren’t quite ready we have THE prize for you.
Teaming up with OMM we can offer 2 people the chance to win all the kit and instruction they need for trail running. PLUS, the lucky two will also win an entry into OMM LITE trail running event to put what they’ve learnt to the test.
In case you needed reminding, OMM teams are unsupported and required to navigate, make route decisions, manage their kit and move quickly over rough terrain.
OMM promotes self-reliance and knowledge of the skills required in the mountains. Sound mountain judgement is a fundamental principal of the OMM event. The event is meant to be hard and make the competitors think about their actions in the mountains.
At the start of the race, you’ll receive a map of your chosen course. You then choose a route between the marked checkpoints and finish at the overnight camp. You and your team mate are expected to choose kit and a route that match the conditions and terrain you’re heading into for the two days. The most skilled team will win. Simple!
If all that sounds a tad daunting, but nonetheless inspirational, then this is the prize for you.
The winners will receive
Waterproof jacket, waterproof trouser race vest, tights/shorts, race tee, vest compressor pod, race socks, emergency survival bag
Advice on running on uneven ground; how to follow a trail network on a map; how to plan a route; how to identify different types of trails; safety and getting help on the mountain if needed.
You’ll make your own way to the OMM Festival in the Forest of Dean on May 5-6. Set up camp (in as big a tent as you like – this isn’t a race!), bring a bbq, beer and your supporters for a fun, comfortable weekend learning from the best in the best kit. See you there!*For more info go to www.theomm.com/omm-festival/
