7th/8th June 2014
Two-Day Mountain Competition for Pairs with Overnight Campsite
Location is 4hrs Drive North of Glasgow/Edinburgh,
from Inverness (A NorthYear!)
Join us for the 20th Anniversary LAMM at another
secret and iconic location in the Scottish Highlands. Our event
is a 2 day mountain navigation journey with an isolated midcamp,
is full of surprises and can be enjoyed on many levels. Those
of you who take part regularly will know that our ethos has always
been to provide an adventure that slowly unravels from the time
you enter online until you complete the event on the Sunday. We
can tell you now that LAMM 2014 will be a north of Scotland event
and we'll provide "a little more detail" about the venue
when the final land permissions are agreed.
As usual you'll get the sense that you are undertaking
a big mountain journey across huge tracts of Scottish Mountain
country. There is a lot more to the LAMM than a long orienteering
event criss-crossing the hills. Scaling big mountains is the hallmark
of the LAMM, sets it apart from other Mountain Marathons and makes
it both unique and special - the Connoisseurs Mountain Marathon.
As well as attracting Europe's top Elite competitors,
we welcome less competitive teams who relish a 2 day walking journey,
navigating their way along a high level route through beautiful
Scottish Mountain scenery. We provide 5 linear courses from Elite
to D and also the Score course. The only pre-requisite is an ability
to navigate and travel safely in the mountains.
For more information, please read the 2012
Event Details. We'll provide full details in the next few days.
NEW JUNIOR CATEGORY ON D COURSE
This year we are also providing a separate Junior category
on the D course which is targetted at juniors aged 16 and 17 who
are partnered by a parent or guardian. There will be special male
and female junior handicap prize which is based on the exact age
of the junior (not the parent!)
EVENT IS FILLING FAST
The event is now more than 60% full. We are providing an
Early Entry Discount until 15th May, so please enter soon! The
LAMM always fills to capacity so please enter early and claim
your Early Entry Discount. After the event fills, we'll create
a Waiting List so that as few LAMMers as possible are disappointed.
EXCELLENT NEWS FROM OUR SPONSOR LOWE ALPINE
We are delighted that Lowe Alpine will continue their sponsorship
and enthusiastic support of LAMM. Lowe Alpine has been a great
sponsor ever since the first event at Arrochar in 1994. Many thanks
from the organisers and competitors alike for a top commitment
to people, enjoying adventures in the mountains.
We look forward to seeing both old and new faces
on Friday 6th June at another wonderful Scottish Mountain
