Yomp Mountain Challenge
The Full Yomp Mountain Challenge involves a run, or walk, of  23 miles, traversing the beautiful Cumbrian fells in the Upper Eden Valley near Kirkby Stephen.  For those preferring a gentler aim, there are routes of 11.5 miles (Half Yomp) and 6.5 miles (Short Yomp). 

The Yomp Mountain Challenge, formerly known as the Mallerstang Horseshoe and Nine Standards Yomp, was established in 1983 by the Rotary Club of Upper Eden to commemorate the achievements of the British Forces engaged in the Falklands Campaign.  The 2017 event will be the 35th Yomp.
