About the Event

It’s not your average 26 mile marathon! Come and test your navigation and endurance skills at this year’s Mourne Mountain Marathon, 21st – 22nd September. A competitive event for teams of two, who can enter one of five categories, covering between 35km and 55km over two days.

At the start of each day teams are presented with a route card listing a number of control markers which are identified by 6-figure map references. Competitors must visit each control in the prescribed order but may choose their own route between each marker. A feature of the event is the overnight camp, at which all teams must be self-sufficient with everything being carried throughout the two days of competition.

There are four 2 Day classes of different lengths and difficulty catering for runners and walkers – Elite, B Class, C Class and D Class (walkers). There is also a 1 Day Score class. Teams must have navigation skills and experience walking and / or running in the mountains.

This year’s event is our 40th anniversary and we plan to make it really special! Find out more at www.mourne2day.com and find us on social media @mourne2day.
