We are very grateful that our friends from Kong Adventure sponsor our Mini Mountain Marathons.
Kong Adventure is a fantastic shop in the centre of Keswick with a great selection of fell running and other products. They also offer a variety of indoor climbing options as well as outdoor adventures. Have a look when you are next in Keswick (Heads Rd, Keswick, Cumbria, CA12 5EZ).
We really enjoyed our evening race in Dovedale on the 19th May. Philip Vokes from LUOC completed the course in an amazing time of 1:39. First lady was Kate Busfield with 340 points
After a glorious summer, a 'normal' bank holiday... Unfortunately rain and wind! Despite that everybody made it in safely and most with a smile, specially knowing that the cakes and soup were still to come. Steve Birkenshaw from Borrowdale FR won the race with 557 points and first lady home was Bryony Halcrow with 420 points. The area was very nice, but also quite challenging with lots of steep up and downhills. Well done everybody for completing the course safely and thank you for participating.

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.
We are also supported by the
And we support the John Muir Trust
The last race of the 2018 Series will be held on Burbage (and Totley) Moor, a fantastic area in the Peak District. Registration is at the Hathersage village Hall. Looking forward to seeing you all at the last race of the 2018 Series
