Grampian Mountain Challenge

The Grampian Mountain Challenge is Back!
17-18th November 2012
Following on from a successful debut in 2010, the Grampian Mountain Challenge is pleased to welcome runners to North East Scotland for another unique blend of harsh weather, comfort, physical challenge and mental challenge in November 2012. The same organisation team are back with new ideas to bring the classic event format to a new location, 1 hour from Aberdeen.
This event combines forest orienteering and mountain navigation over two days in the Deeside area, with a remote campsite. The event format will be the same in 2012 as it was in 2010. For those not familiar with the format, the key points are:
Full waterproof body cover, thermal upper body cover, thermal bag (i.e. foil bag, not blanket), head torch, hat, gloves, personal first aid kit, personal food plus emergency food. Must carry long trousers if running in shorts.
Solo entry: 18 years
Pairs: 16 years. The second competitor must be 18 years or older.
Successful completion of the OMM, LAMM or HMM (C class or above), or
Successful completion of 2+ category A fell races or 2+ long orienteering events, with experience of walking/running in UK hills in winter.
