1-3 May 2020
Cannock Chase, Staffordshire


With the uncertain times we all have ahead of us, it is with great disappointment that we are cancelling the OMM Festival at Cannock Chase.

We hope you are staying healthy, looking after yourself and others by respecting the 2m social distancing instruction.  We’re in this together – and like a Mountain Marathon, we’re all looking forward to that hug when we’ve crossed the finish line.

At this stage the OMM Alps, OMM Japan and 53rd OMM are all planning to go ahead. PLEASE continue to enter these events as this will help us immensely to keep going.  We guarantee a full refund if we do need to cancel these events.

We have incurred costs in arranging the festival but we want you to have a full refund. Please check your inbox for information about arranging your refund.

Thank you all again for your continued support. Please look after each other and stay healthy.

Any questions please contact support@theomm.com or call 01524 548040

The Festival in detail

OMM Fest is a two day outdoor celebration with a selection of events to whet the appetite of first time racers and seasoned vets alike. There is an event to suit every ability; including the UK’s first disability-inclusive trail race, whether you are looking to challenge yourself or enjoy a fun run out.

With catering and bar on site, experts on hand for kit and event queries, skills workshops plus free camping; non-competitors are welcome too so bring the kids (and someone to look after them) while you enjoy the trails.

Gather your tribe and we’ll see you there!
