UKC Gear, Aug 2010
Founded in 1968 the OMM is the originator of the two day mountain marathon type event and is for teams of two, carrying all clothing, equipment, tent, sleeping bag, food for 36 hours, navigating one's own route and including an overnight camp. Teams are totally self supporting, no GPS or outside support is allowed and teams NOT arriving at the the overnight camp are assumed to have camped safely. Your team partner is your first source of help and assistance. The reputation of the event is worldwide and every year we have entrants from between 12-14 countries.
The event area has been announced as Dartmoor (one of the worst kept secrets) and the Event Headquarters is at Okehampton Camp.
If you want to book accommodation please go to www.dartmoor.co.uk. This is the official Dartmoor Partnership for tourism and trade.
We will be arranging free coaches from Exeter railway stations and airport on Friday and early Saturday morning. Also parking facilities close to Exeter where you can park your car are car share to ensure you are arriving at the event centre 4 to a car, and then catch the free coach. See the website for details.
So get training and look forward to seeing you all at the event in October!
