When October rolls around most people are starting to think about moving their sport indoors. Those that haven’t already that is! “Cyclists” move to their turbos and swimmers ditch the open water for the warmth of the pool. Not a select bunch of Wigglers though. For us, October is one of the best months of the year as it brings round the annual OMM. (Original Mountain Marathon). A yearly pilgrimage to the highest and mountainous of places the UK has to offer, to compete in the 48 hours of self-supported mountaineering. Reading a map, carrying your own stuff and sleeping under the stars in some of the most picturesque places in the country. All in one beautifully composed weekend.
This year the OMM takes place in Tweedsmuir, Scottish Borders. The terrific views, glorious mountains and wonder filling lochs will be our companions. 2015 brings a record number of Wiggle teams, six! SIX!
