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
The second race of the 2018 Series was held from Glenridding in the Helvellyn area in the Lake District. A beautiful area with many route choices. And we were very lucky with the weather, the sun even came out! Neil Talbott won the race with an amazing 716 points and Eleanor Johnstone was first lady with a fantastic 529 points.

SUNDAY 8TH APRIL 2018
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 our friends from Rab have
sponsored the Mini Mountain
Marathons for many years
The third race of the 2018 Series will once again be held in the Lake District. This time we have chosen the area North of Ambleside. This beautiful Lakeland area is full of deep valleys, streams, steep crags and views of the Lake Windermere. It also has some pretty steep peaks like Dove Crags, Red Screes and Thornthwaite Crag. The registration is from the Parish Centre in Ambleside with a remote start a bit north of the town. We are looking forward to meeting you on the Bank holiday Sunday 26th August!
