Event descriptionExplore, Navigate, Camp in the big mountains of the German Alps. Using the same format as the iconic UK event. 60 Checkpoints spread across 300km2 of the spectacular German Alps. Choose your route to find the checkpoints either across the big Iron Cross summits or the fast meadows and forests. A challenge for those who love the mountains.
Terrain descriptionThe OMM aims to offer a range of courses that supports movement up and down the scale of difficulty and nature of challenge. The score courses are the best option for those who want the flexibility to choose the distances that they cover. LINEAR (LINE) COURSES Time based courses; where specified checkpoints must be visited in order. Teams are free to choose their routes between the checkpoints. Fastest time wins. This is a timed navigation course where specified checkpoints must be visited in order. A COURSE Approximately 55km (straight line distance) over two days with 4300m of climbing. The winning time is in the region of 10 hours. In order to compete on this course we strongly recommend previous race experience on the B Course or a similar event. B COURSE Approximately 38km (straight line distance) over two days with 2400m of climbing. The winning time is in the region of 7 hours. In order to compete on this course we strongly recommend previous race experience on the B Course or a similar event. SCORE COURSES Highest score based courses; a fixed period where competitions accrue as many points as possible in the time allowed. Checkpoints are assigned points values based on the difficulty of location. Competitors choose a route that gains them the highest score. 2 Points are deducted for every minute or part thereof outside of their time allowance. On a score course you can choose to finish before your time expires should you need to. These course are easier to complete than Linear but very difficult to do well competitively due to the increased amount of planning required. LONG SCORE Time limit of 7 hours on day 1 and 6 hours on day 2. Significant hill experience and fitness is required.
