The highest marathon in the world

Original Everest Marathon November 2019

gigg practice weekend

At Giggleswick School, on the SW edge of the Yorkshire Dales at Settle. BD24 0DE

The weekend is for people who have already signed up to OEM2019 or anyone thinking about it. It’s all about getting to know each other and meeting some of the staff team before leaving for Nepal. There will be input on the skills that will be helpful for the marathon, guidance on shoes and gear and for those who want a good, long run; there will a new bit of ground to train over.

Arrival is from 5pm on Friday afternoon and we finish after lunch on Sunday.

You can bring your own camping gear or camper van (limited places) or make use of the schools Cricket pavilion – a shared space, using either your own sleeping bag and mattress or the schools.

Food will be excellent and plentiful as the school will be providing Friday and Saturday dinner, Saturday and Sunday breakfasts and lunches.  

Having said in the last newsletter that I didn’t expect anyone from outside the UK to make it to the weekend, I was delighted to hear that Heather, who lives on Vancouver Island will be joining us.
