Many thanks to all those competitors who completed the survey so quickly after the 2017 event – when they were still recovering from a weekend on the fells! We has around 350 responses which represented around half of the teams entered in the event and confirmed that the SLMM is a much loved event with a strong and loyal supporter base who want to retain the very special feel of the event. Nearly half of respondents enter every year and three quarters enter every year or most years. Of those that completed the 2017 event 72% have already made plans for next year and 26% not yet decided. Only 2% won’t return in 2018 and that is largely because of other commitments. We had some very good suggestions for building on success and we plan on introducing a few improvements that will be announced in due course. Come along and see how we do in 2018!
