SUNDAY 21ST NOVEMBER
NORTH WALES (TBC)
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).
Great race in the Howgills, a new area for us and for quite a few competitors. Lots of steep climbs and tough descents which resulted in some sore legs and over-estimated timings. An unbelievable win for Philip Rutter from Helm Hill Runners with a score of 680 (only 2 check points missed). First female is Victoria Thompson of Helm Hill Runners with 447 points. We had no real latecomers. It was great to have homemade soup and cake back. Overall a great day out!
SUNDAY 29TH AUGUST
HOWGILLS, LAKE DISTRICT
We are looking forward to seeing you again in November. We are planning a great location in North Wales. More details will follow later.
NEWS: September race cancelled - We are not able to get permission from the NT. Next race after August is 21st November most likely in North Wales. Series is now best score of 2.
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
