All set for the OMM

This afternoon I’m flying up to Prestwick for the all new Original Mountain Marathon (previously the KIMM), set to take place in Galloway Forest Park over the weekend. In a repeat of two years ago I’m running the B class with fellow Tuesday night runner Neil (whose Aussie passport also helps guarantee us an entry). Back in the Brecons Neil was the one struggling but, whilst I’ve become less fit over the intervening years, Neil has only got faster so we’ll see who’s trailing behind this time. The weather forecast doesn’t look too bad at the moment in terms of wind, rain and temperature although lack of visibility may make navigation interesting. The previous week’s rain is likely to make the legendary terrain even boggier and stream crossings fun. Full report when I get back on Monday but you can watch the action unfold on SleepMonsters in the meantime.
