The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE) is a youth awards programme founded by Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh in 1956, which has since expanded to 144 nations. The awards recognise adolescents and young adults for completing a series of self-improvement exercises modelled on Kurt Hahn’s solution to the "Six Declines of Modern Youth".
Several Lifesystems and Lifeventure products are specifically recommended by the DofE charity as the best choice for those taking part in their bronze, silver, or gold awards. We are proud to be working with DofE to provide high quality and reliable kit for such a diverse range of people all over the UK.
The DofE recognise that this is a difficult time for everyone, and if you are involved in doing or running the DofE in any capacity you may be looking for some answers. The DofE have created a hub where participants, Leaders and parents can find all the information and ideas they need during the coronavirus outbreak at #DofEWithADifference
Original Mountain Marathon (OMM)
The OMM is a 2-day Mountain event, held in a different region of the UK every year. It was first held in 1968 when Gerry Charnley, a skilled mountaineer and orienteer, designed it to test orienteering skills in extreme circumstances; the full-length course is a double-marathon length race. Each team must carry all their gear, including equipment for an overnight camp. Moreover, the course is not disclosed until the race begins, so each team must have good navigation skills.
Lifesystems is proud to have its products recommended by the forerunner of modern adventure racing.
