The second race of the 2017 Series was brilliant. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Sunny skies, clear visibility for navigation and everybody having their soup and cakes in the sun outside. The area around Coniston is fantastic. Beautiful views over the estuary, lakes, tarns and fells. And great running although quite wet under the foot. The race was won by Neil Talbott from Ambleside AC with an amazing 705 points (visiting 21 controls). First Lady home was in a mixed team - Hannah Moulton and Chris Jones from Sheffield hash house harriers with 500 points. Well done to the winners and everybody for participating.

The exact location will be announced 1 month before the race. 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.
Our friends from Rab have sponsored the Mini Mountain Marathons for a long time - Thank you!
