The final round of the Rab Mini Mountain Marathon 2016 Series was held on Tintwistle Moor. The weather was kind for the time of the year, much better than last year at this time when we had to hold the Rab flags down to avoid them from taking off! Tom Gomersall from Bingley Harriers & AC won the race with 680 points with Jamin Parris from Carnethy Hill RC first lady home with 540 points. The area was a great area to run in although parts were very boggy and covered with tussocks. This race concludes the second year we have been running these events. We have been thoroughly enjoying organising them and it is great to see many of you back race after race, enjoying yourselves. Up to 2017. For full results click here.
Our friends at Rab have decided to focus on their core trade 'climbing' and have therefore stopped our sponsorship. We would like to thank them for their brilliant support for our events over many years.
It is with great pleasure that we can announce our new sponsor Kong Adventurefor the 2017 series!
The first race in the 2017 series will be on Sunday the 5th of February 2017 and will be held in the Peak District. The exact location will be confirmed circa a month before the event. For details on our 2017 events 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.
