OMM events are an all round mountain challenge and requires a competitor to use a number of different skills at different times throughout the race. Continual personal development is a goal for every hill user. A good instructor will enable you develop your skills and move more efficiently across the terrain. Below are instructors that we personally know and will provide an excellent course to develop your abilities in the mountains.
