Gramp Mountain Marathon Success

There was success last weekend in the emerald isle for a team from Gramp in the Mourne Mountain Marathon. Experienced MM’ers Sean O’Sullivan and Rob Hickling teamed up to run their first Mourne, which is renowned as a small, friendly and relaxed event. After a good first day, they were third overnight on the B class, 20 minutes down on the leaders. Then on Sunday, Sean and Rob had the fastest time of the day and took the overall class win by 5 minutes. The splits on Sunday make interesting reading, as some of the other top teams made significant navigational errors and lost quite a lot of time – perhaps because they do less orienteering! The times and splits are at:

If you believe you have the endurance over the hills, why not try participating in the Grampian Mountain Challenge in November!
