Terra Nova Sponsors New Mountain Marathon Youth Championships Trophies

Posted on April 19th, 2018

Terra Nova Equipment is sponsoring trophies for the new Mountain Marathon Youth Championships. 2018 sees the launch of the Youth Championship which is aimed at encouraging and motivating the younger generation to participate in the events.  It’s hoped that this inspiration will carry through to future generations and increase youth progression within the sport.

The Youth Championship hosts four age categories; Under 18, Under 19, Under 20 and Under 21, with a male and female winner from each. The Championships are based on the results of three events:  the Marmot Dark Mountains™, the LAMM and the ROC Mountain Marathon™.

Carolyn Budding, Marketing Director from Terra Nova Equipment Ltd said:
“Encouraging youth to enter these challenging but enjoyable events is vitally important for the future success of mountain marathons, so we were pleased to have the opportunity to sponsor the Youth Championship Trophies. We hope this will help raise the profile of the sport with younger outdoor enthusiasts who will continue to participate for many years.”

The experience of participating in Mountain Marathons can be hugely rewarding and valuable for building self-esteem and confidence, particularly in young people. Like the closely related sport of orienteering, young people take part with their parents, but as they get older, participation drops off.  The Youth Mountain Marathon Championship was created to provide an exciting pathway for young participants to continue within the sport.

The driving force behind the British Mountain Marathon Championship, Shane Ohly said:

“I am very grateful for the fantastic support from Terra Nova Equipment who have helped to make this all happen. I am certain it will be fun and rewarding working together in the future.”
