View south from An Cliseam I feel very privileged and super excited to be organising the 2018 event on a Scottish island again. It's been far too long - 14 years since Isle of Mull and 21 years since the 1997 Isle of Jura Classic. Watch this historic 1997 Jura video Part 1 & Part 2) and feel the vibe of an island LAMM. The LAMM will be the biggest sporting event ever held on the Outer Hebrides - the Connoisseurs Mountain Marathon. It is the first time since 1997 that I have released the location more than 36 hours before the event but this year is far too big a deal to keep the location secret! I want you to have plenty of time to plan and make the most of your adventure on the beguiling Outer Hebrides.

We will be visiting a magnificent area, crossing a huge expanse of fabulous Scottish Mountains and wild country. Please join us on a journey through some of Scotland's finest mountain country. The emphasis is always on providing challenging courses requiring navigation skills and great routes that cross the classic wild, high mountain country. Please join us at another magnificent venue and with an overnight camp at a wild mountain location ..... This is the Connoisseurs Mountain Marathon and it is the only Mountain Marathon in the UK that takes you on a journey across 40,000 Hectares of big mountains and visits the summits of Munros.

Taking so many people to Tarbert on the Isle of Harris will be a challenge, however we have done this sort of thing before - moving 700 to Isle of Jura in 1997 and 1000 to Isle of Mull in 1995 and 2005. You don't need to decide how to get to the island when you are entering the event, but the person adding this entry should EDIT MY ENTRY later to complete the transport section when you have made a plan. You can find more details of transport to Tarbert here. Now go plan your adventure!

IMPORTANT - BEFORE YOU ENTER ENSURE YOUR PARTNER IS REGISTERED WITH SIENTRIES
Our event is the second race in the 2018 British Mountain Marathon Championship. Registration with SiEntries is essential if your partner is taking part in the Championship as each person needs to be identified throughout the series by their own unique SiEntries ID. Contact your partner and ensure that they have already registered to use SiEntries. They should then give you their SiEntries ID (not the same as their SI-Card number) and postcode. If they have not yet registered with SiEntries, please ask them to do so by visiting www.sientries.co.uk. Once you have their SiEntries ID, surname and postcode, you will be able to enter them as the second member of your team without needing to type in any of their personal details. After you have entered the event, the person who made the original entry can use the EDIT MY ENTRY option on the event website to View/Edit the entry.

Friday 23:30: At the height of Sparta's power between the 6th and 4th centuries BC it was commonly accepted that one Spartan was worth several men of any other state, and so it also goes that one LAMM competitor is probably worth several competitors from any other event. Read more...

Did I just hear a Wow! Chapeau to those of you who guessed the three iconic Scottish Mountain ranges from the recent clues.

We've been working on this venue since 2014 (on and off). When you hold the map for the first time on Saturday morning, you may be filled with a sense of wonder (and trepidation) at the immensity of the area and the challenge ahead of you. We are so fortunate to be able to cross all these mountains in a weekend. Those with access to the Internet on Friday night will be able to see something of significant interest from 18:00 at www.lamm.co.uk!LAMM Beer

The event centre is in a very flat field behind Corrie Hallie IV23 2QN, 2 miles south of Dundonnell on the A832. The arrow on this map shows the Event Centre field. You’ll see yellow LAMM signs turning you off the main road, signposted to Badrallach. Please drive slowly and follow marshals directions to park on the field. Camping is away from the cars, nearer to our big marquee. Please don't camp in the taped channel which is required for vehicle access to the marquee. Please read and print the Event Details and also check out the Final Details. There will be Ales courtesy of the very local An Teallach brewery.
