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).
Stunning day today with the sun fully out in South Snowdonia, North Wales. A new area for many, including the famous Rhinogydd range. Beautiful autumn colours, deep valleys, high ridges and sea views.
Neil Talbott from Ambleside AC won the race with 655 points, collecting 21 of the 25 check points in total, a remarkable result. Sue Richmond from Pennine Fell runners was the first lady home with a great 480 points.
Great atmosphere after the race with everybody enjoying the sunshine and the home made soup and cakes.

Next year due to some special circumstances we are only organising a series of 3 races, in May, September and November. We will be back in full force in 2023. We are also organising our first big 2 day Mountain Marathon in Scotland on Arran on the August bank holiday weekend.
The first 2022 race on the 8th May 2022 will be held in the Lake District. We have a good location in mind and will inform you nearer the time about the exact location. Thank you for supporting us in 2021!
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
