time to think ahead to LAMM 2006. It will take place on 17/18th
June 2006, the same weekend as last year. As usual, the venue will
be a fine and undisclosed location in keeping with the Connoisseurs
Mountain Marathon! This year the event will be further north than
Isle of Mull 2005 (not further south
as was stated in an advert for the LAMM that has just appeared in
the FRA Fixtures List). We like to hold a far north
and a not so far north event on alternate years, always
in a classic part of the Scottish Highlands.
for 2006 is Andy Spenceley, well known to mountain marathoners and
fell runners alike. We're very pleased that Angela Mudge is returning
again as controller.
News From Lowe Alpine
We are delighted that Lowe Alpine have guaranteed another two years
of LAMM sponsorship and this secures the event for the foreseeable
future. 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 competition
in the outdoors.
Information About the LAMM?
Please take a look at all the online 2004 and 2005 information -
Event Details & Final Details, Best Routes & Results, Control
Descriptions, Galleries and Reports/Feedback from Glencarron and
Mull. This should give you a flavour of the event and help you to
choose the best course for your team.
Entry to the event is online only at www.lamm.co.uk
and will take place from mid-February. Please ensure you have joined
the LAMM email mailing list so that we can tell you when entries
are being taken. The LAMM following is so faithful that the 2005
event was oversubscribed. We would strongly recommend an early commitment
this year to avoid disappointment. We will save a few slots to allow
late entries for Elite and A teams.
The LAMM Team
looks forward to meeting you all again on Friday 16th June 2006.
Dont miss out on it or you may regret it later!
