Grampain Mountain Challenge
If you thought that the Mountain marathon season finishes with this weekends OMM then you are mistaken. The Grampian Mountain Challenge is a Mountain Marathon style event that takes place on the 13th and 14th November between Balater and Braemar in the Inver Forest and Invercauld Hills.
Conditions are likely to be harsh winter fell running conditions but, the organisers are taking pity on competitors and you don’t have to carry your kit for the overnight. So, you can pack the warm sleeping bag and mat instead of shivering for warmth in a bag stuffed with one or two feathers layed on a bit of bubble wrap.
