The Mourne Mountain Marathon is Ireland’s only 2 day endurance & navigation event

The Mourne Mountain Marathon is Ireland’s only 2 day endurance & navigation event.

A competitive event for teams of two, who can enter one of four categories, covering between 35km and 55km over two days. Camp overnight and be self-sufficient. Walkers to elite runners.

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. They 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 three 2 Day classes/courses of different lengths and difficulty – Elite, B Class, C Class and D Class (walkers). There is also a 1 Day Score class. Navigation skills and experience walking and / or running in the mountains is essential. Prizes for classes and categories
