LAMM 2002

LAMM 2002

The 2002 Lowe Alpine Mountain marathon took place near to Brig O' Turk in the Trossachs with the Event Centre at Achray Farm. Elite and A competitors were running over Ben Venue and adjoining hills from outflow of Loch Katrine while some 640 competitors on the B, C, D an Novice courses enjoyed an early morning trip to the start at Stronachlachar on the steamship Sir Walter Scott. Weather conditions were without precedent. More rain at this time of year than for half a century which made the Event Centre, midcamp and conditions underfoot extremely wet.

Competitors awoke each morning to the sound of bagpipes courtesy of Niall Watson, one of our marshals. For those who are interested the tunes were - Saturday: Captain Norman Orr-Ewing, The Earl of Mansfield. Sunday: 10th Battalion the HLI Crossing the Rhine, Pipe Major Donald Maclean of Lewis.

Congratulations to all competitors for coping with the wettest LAMM in nine years. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the event, especially after the Black Water flooded our original 5 hectare Event Centre site.
