The first race of the Kong Mini Mountain Marathon 2017 Series was in Borrowdale in the Lakes. Our new sponsors Kong Adventure were there as well with their mobile shop. Thanks guys for sponsoring us! The race was challenging with snow on the fells and some pretty steep areas with difficult down hills. But it was also beautiful out there with decent weather (for February) and fantastic views - below the fog! Steve Birkinshaw from Borrowdale Fellrunners won the race with an amazing 501 score with Neil Talbott from Ambleside AC just behind him. Kirsty Bryan-Jones and Helen Elmore from Dark Peak were first ladies home with 340 points. For full results click here.
Our second race of the 2017 Series is on Sunday 2nd April and will again be held in the Lake District. We have found another great area. The race will be held near Coniston near Coniston Water. Are you ready for the Coniston Old Man and Swirl How!? Have you heard of Banishead Quarry? Get ready for another great race. 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.
