We've been involved in lots of creative projects in the mountains both personally and as a business. Individually, over the years, Rock + Run employees have climbed lots of new routes in the UK, made early repeats in Europe and USA, forced desperate boulder problems, broken mountain running records and generally been fully engaged with rocks, ice and mountains.
Picking orders from the hardware wall
As a business we have been lucky enough to have been involved with several projects that are now firmly established as part of British climbing and mountaineering culture.
In 1986 we devised a new format for mountain marathons. Frustrated by unimaginative course planning, lack of technical navigation and over used competition areas, the ‘Rock + Run Mountain Marathon’ set a new format for a more challenging and interesting two day event using new areas in Scotland. The event exists today as the Lowe Alpine Mountain Marathon.
Early UKC circa 1999
In 1996 we helped Adam Greenwood get the first version of UK Climbing up and running. When Adam moved on we set up UKC under its own domain. Along with Rockfax we developed UKC into one of the busiest climbing web sites in the world and a valuable resource for the climbing community.
