EXITING NEWS: 8TH MAY DOVEDALE EVENING RACE TO GO AHEAD
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).
Our Kong MapRunF Virtual Charity Challenge is now completed. A total of 43 people too part in the virtual challenge near Loweswater from mid September to the end of December. We have seen quite a few donations to Cockermouth Mountain Rescue - thank you for that! As agreed with Harveys maps we will donate the map royalties (and a bit more) on their behalf as well. Thank you Harveys for supporting this initiative and thank you again to Mike Godfree who has helped us to set up the event in MapRunF. You can find the winners via the link below
VIRTUAL CHARITY CHALLENGE
We are also hopeful we can organise the postponed April race on Sunday 6th of June in the Lake District. The aim is Borrowdale, but we still need to get permission. We will keep you up to date
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 National Trust and Harvey maps
And we support the John Muir Trust
We are very excited to announce that we have now obtained permission to hold our 8th May 2 hour Evening Mini Mountain Marathon in Dovedale, Peak District, starting from Ilam Hall, Ilam. For entry click below
