Less Than 3 Weeks To Go!
Not long until we will all be gathering in a field, deep in the Black Mountains of South Wales for the 51st OMM.
We hope your training is going well (or at least going!).
Below you will find some more useful info ahead of the event plus a few friendly reminders.
Doing our part for the environment!
Events can be heavy on single use items like plates & cups. Our goal is to reduce the environmental impact of the OMM event as much as possible. We need your help to do this….
As with all our events, we will be using a specialist waste management firm to collect, sort and recycle all the waste from the event. They work to keep as much, if not all, of the waste collected, out of landfill plus do all the sorting off site, meaning we don’t have to worry about sorting it at the event!
This will be our first year using a deposit scheme for pint pots at the bar. A £1.50 deposit gets you a reusable pint pot that you can then either return when you’re finished or else keep as a memento! This will drastically reduce our plastic use and hopefully set the standard for future events.
USE YOUR OWN MUG
You are free to use your own mug for hot drinks at the Event HQ, we will have cups available but we hope by using your own mugs, we can reduce waste further. Keep your mug handy at the finish on Sunday for squash and water!
Note: You are unable to use your own mugs for beer!
You can find out more about our commitment to sustainability at the event in our latest article.

Team Changes & Cancellations
Changes to your team or to the course you have entered can be requested up to Friday 12th October, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
After 12th October, amendments to teams can be made at registration.
Note: We can not guarantee course changes but will do our best to accommodate any requests.
+UPDATE 12th OCT+ We have no further teams on the waiting list and the list is now closed. Our usual cancellation policy now applies (see below)
For any cancellations received up to 1 Aug 18, a refund (-10% admin fee) is made. After this date we cannot offer a refund as we have already paid for your attendance. The event is run on a not for profit basis and one of the ways of keeping the costs as low as possible is to agree numbers as far in advance of the event as possible, hence why it becomes more expensive to enter as we get closer to the event. For these reasons we are also unable to defer entries to future events.
If you haven’t already, please take a moment to fill out the Competitor Declaration, this will speed things up at registration.
You can keep up to date with all the event news on our News Feed, where you’ll find useful links and articles ahead of the big weekend.
