High Terrain Events are delighted to announce that the Scafell Pike trail Marathon will now form part of the international trail marathon series known as the European Mountain Marathon (EMM) Series.

The EMM series (www.emmseries.com) will consist of nine events for 2014 from 4 different countries including Russia, Portugal and Spain, ranging from the Ice Marathon in Siberia to the lava fields of the Canary Islands & the Picos de Europa in Northern Spain.

Event director Ian Mulvey stated "The Scafell Pike Trail Marathon is perfect for this series. It is hoped that the event will attract participants from all over Europe, showcasing Keswick as a great destination for outdoor sports. After the success of the inaugural event in 2013 this is an additional boost both for the event and the region".

Incorporating England's highest peak and taking in stunning mountain terrain, the Scafell Pike Trail Marathon encapsulates the ethos of this series, as stated by founder of the EMM series, Luis Garcia, "The EMM Series joins mountain marathons from all over Europe and requires an event of proven organisational quality, as well as respecting and protecting the environment in which it has been developed. Scafell has been included into the series due to the high standard of organisation and the stunningly beautiful race route"

Salomon International Mountain Runner Ricky Lightfoot and winner of the 2013 event added "This is really great news, it's a fantastic event and being part of the EMM Series should give it a real international flair".

The event is scheduled for Sunday 15th June, 2014 and will also form part of the 2014 Salomon UK Trail Tour.
