January 2013 will be the first year for an exciting new event called Marmot Dark Mountains™. It takes the classic two-day mountain marathon format and gives it a new... darker twist. Rather than two days of running with an overnight camp in between, Marmot Dark Mountains™ packs everything into one winters night! Like most regular mountain marathons, Marmot Dark Mountains™ is a pairs event. Marmot Dark Mountains™ is based on the usual mountain marathon format with Elite, A, B, C and Score classes for competitors to choose from. The event will kick-off on the evening of Saturday 26th with the longest classes setting off first for dusk-to-dawn racing. The shorter classes will set off later in the evening with the aim of most competitors finishing within an hour or so of each other the following morning. This should make for an exciting finish as all the courses and most of the competitors converge on the finish as dawn breaks.
