OEM practice weekend – 10th - 13th May 2019
Giggleswick School, Settle, North Yorkshire, BD24 0DE
The weekend is for people who have already signed up for the OEM as well as those who love the idea of running the highest marathon in the world and want to know more.
It's a weekend of skill development, training and getting to know the people who you’ll be spending time with in Nepal. We’re going to be based in the lovely grounds of Giggleswick, on the SW edge of the Yorkshire Dales. This gives us steep ground to practice ascending and descending and a variety of terrain for long runs over the Three Peaks.
Marcus Scotney, winner of the Dragons Back and Spine Race, will be running the OEM this year. He is a running coach and therapist and will be sharing his wisdom with everyone at the training weekend.
