The Original Mountain Marathon

Well done to all the participants in this years OMM.

BBC gives the details of the event and the appalling weather leading to it being cancelled for the first time in 41 years.

There is more here and here too but this video gives an idea of what the conditions were like!

Chris - I've been following this one all weekend and thinking about what it must be like out there on the fells! But if anyone can brave those conditions it's mountain marathoners - they have to be some of the toughest in the business...

It has been interesting following this in some of the outdoors blogs. Quite a difference of opinion as to whether or not the event should have been called off.

Last I heard everyone was accounted for, thankfully.
