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).
The last race of the series was held on Burbage / Totley moor in the Peak District. It was quite a misty day which made navigation quite challenging. We had a record turn out and luckily everybody made it back safely. Martyn James from Port Talbot Harriers won the race in an amazing 680 (out of 770) points. Katy McKay was the first lady home with again an amazing 545 points. We would like to thank everybody who took part in the 2018 series. It was a fantastic year again. Up to 2019! Hope to see you all back on the fells, bogs and moors!

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
A new year, a new Kong Mini Mountain Marathon series. The first race of the 2019 series is again in North Wales. Last year we had a brilliant experience with white tops and sunshine. Who knows this year... The race starts from Capel Curig and the area contains famous tops like Tryfan and Carnedd Llewelyn. A beautiful area with amazing views of the wide Welsh mountain valleys. One definitely not to miss. Registration is at the Capel Curig community centre.
