Marmot Dark Mountains follows the usual two-day mountain marathon format but condenses it into one winters night. Elite, A, B, C and Score categories set off in pairs on a staggered start, the longer courses followed by the shorter ones, all hoping to converge back at the event centre as dawn breaks. Live GPS tracking enables the organisers, alongside friends, family, and any other keen followers, to track the progress of the competitors through the night. Marmot Dark Mountains has something for everyone; the Elite course to challenge the most seasoned of competitor through to the C and short score courses which would be suitable for a first timer (with suitable navigational experience).

The SILVA GL3D is an adventurous three-day mountain marathon with a unique, relaxed and friendly atmosphere that attracts both runners and long-distance walkers. Over the years the event has built up a dedicated following of participants who enjoy the challenge of three long, consecutive days in the hills.

Participants can choose from either the Expert, Wainwright, or Caf course. Participants simply enter the event, and then choose whichever course they prefer on the day e.g. Wainwright for all three days, Wainwright then Caf on day 2, or any mix-and-match combination. All participants still share the same overnight camp. The Caf Course is specifically aimed at experienced walkers and slower runners.

Rather than complex navigation, the emphasis is on long mountain journeys, spectacular scenery and enjoying an amazing mountain experience. Participants should expect mostly mountain trails and footpaths, along ridges and through valleys, rather than contouring and bogs. We start and finish in the same location just three days apart! So that participants can get maximum enjoyment, we transport their overnight equipment between each camp.

The original Dragon's Back Race happened in September 1992, and ever since it has been whispered about with a mixture of awe and trepidation. Its reputation had reached legendary status with fell, mountain and ultra runners the world over by September 2012 when the second race took place. With the modern era of races now taking place biennially, the Berghaus Dragon's Back Race is respected internationally for both its bulletproof organisation and 'toughest mountain race' status.

The Salomon Mamores VK follows the well established International Skyrunning Federation Vertical Kilometer format, in which participants follow a marked course gaining 1000m of height in less than 5km. Participants are set off at timed intervals with the winner having the fastest overall time to the summit.

Whilst physically arduous, the Salomon Mamores VK route does not include technical terrain that requires any scrambling or rock climbing experience. As such, the race is suitable for any runner who is up for the challenge.
