SPORTident Scottish Mountain Marathon
Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides

A Two-Day Mountain Competition for Pairs with Overnight Campsite
2nd Race in the British Mountain Marathon Championship
Friday 1st/Saturday 2nd June 2018


2018 LAMM Tee 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.

The 2018 tee shirt graphic is designed by our friend Stuart Brown, who has been producing graphics for LAMM tees for more than 20 years. It's a nod to Harris Tweed tartans and follows the LAMM's unique, quirky and stylised design. It depicts the isolated but iconic arcing island chain of the Outer Hebrides which is a must on the bucket list of anyone who enjoys the wild outdoors. It captures the essence of Harris with mountains tumbling seaward and it includes one of the island's stand-out views which many of you will experience when you visit the trig point at control 36!

We are providing a unisex and ladies cotton tee in Dark Heather with the LAMM logo on the sleeve. The main graphic appears on the front of the unisex tee and the back of the ladies' tee. It is based on a photograph by my friend Andrew Leaney who now lives on the Isle of Harris, only 6 miles from where the photo was taken.

Order LAMM Tees here.

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 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!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.


Please help those who are flying to Inverness or arriving by rail or bus to get a lift or share car hire. Visit our Transport From Inverness page.

Have a safe journey. We look forward to seeing you on Friday from 3pm onwards and registration opens at 4pm.
