LAMM 2007 is Nearly Full
Four weeks to go now and the event has almost filled. There are only a few places left and if you are thinking of entering your first LAMM we suggest you look at the 2006 LAMM Feedback to get a feel for the event and understand what makes LAMM competitors come back year after year. Enter online as soon as possible at www.lamm.co.uk.

Changing Your Team Details
If any of your team details including number of LAMM appearances or your travel arrangements which affect your Climate Saving Contribution have changed, please visit the Team Changes webpage at www.lamm.co.uk.

LAMM 2007 Climate Saving Contribution - More than £1100 So Far
So far, we're delighted that 480 teams and the LAMM have so far contributed £1100 to our Climate Saving Contribution Fund. When your travel arrangements are finalised there is still the opportunity to update your team details on the Team Changes page at www.lamm.co.uk and to make a Climate Saving Contribution. An even better way to help is wherever possible to share transport to events such as the LAMM. Please try to make better use of the Share Car Hire and Lifts to the Event facilities at www.lamm.co.uk.

Keswick Mountain Festival - Mini LAMM Taster. 16th/18th May
As part of the festival, we are organising a 4 hour mountain score orienteering event based at George Fisher, Keswick. This is a great opportunity for Novice teams to sample a mountain marathon experience. To see more details visit the Mini LAMM Taster web page at www.lamm.co.uk.

Outdoor Industry Mountain Marathon Championships
Seventeen teams took part in Lowe Alpine's first Outdoor Industry Mountain Marathon Championships. If at least one team member is in full time employment within the Outdoor Industry as a retailer or manufacturer/distributor, you should enter this special competition.

University Mountain Marathon Championships

planetFear Mountain Marathon Championships
This is a new national championship comprising the leading Mountain Marathon events in the UK.
If you are serious about the sport you will want to be part of the series. Each of the events in the series is slightly different so by taking part you can see how you compare over the 5 events of the series. You'll need to be able to cope with the rough terrain and bigger hills of the connoisseurs marathon – the LAMM, the Lowe Alpine Mourne Mountain Marathon, the rain and gales of the OMM, the solo navigational challenge of the Saunders Klets and the GL3D. For more details and to register for the series visit www.runfurther.com.

LAMM 2007 Tee Shirts and Car Stickers
You can see details of the special edition LAMM 2007 Dryflo tee shirt on the 2007 Tee Shirt web page at www.lamm.co.uk. If you would like more car stickers from LAMM 2003, 2004, 2005 or 2006 please send send us an SAE.
