The third race of the 2017 Kong Mini Mountain Marathon Series was in Wasdale. This time a more remote area in the Lake District. A bit harder to get to, but what a beautiful area!! The day started promisingly, but unfortunately it started to rain just when most of the runners started and there was quite a low cloud, making navigation difficult. Later in the day the weather turned milder and most people had their soup and cakes outside, reviewing their route choices. The winner was Jonathon Davies with an impressive 590 points. First lady home was Julia Nolan from Dark Peak FR with 400 points. Well done to the winners and everybody for participating. For full results click here.
Our final race of the 2017 Kong Mini Mountain Marathon Series will be around the Kinder Plateau in the Peak District, starting from Hayfield. This is a fantastic, wild area in the Dark Peaks. Lots of beautiful views, small waterfalls, streams and lots of bog (!). A superb area for fell running and navigation. For details and entry click HERE.

We are all active and passionate fell runners. We live in Thorpe near Dovedale in the Peak District and go out on the hills as much as we can. Alison has been the race organiser for the Mini Mountain Marathons since 2014 and we have taken over the organisation from Dark & White from 2015. We organise these events as a hobby and get our children involved in the organisation and running of the events. Our aim is to deliver professional events with a great atmosphere. Alison and Janneke spend many hours baking the cakes and preparing soup for the events. Erwin and Chris do all the computer stuff, finance and marketing and everybody gets involved in preparing the routes, recceing, setting out / collecting controls and of course on race day.
