SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER
PEAK DISTRICT, LOCATION 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).
What a beautiful day today! The sun was out, visibility was great, but it was quite warm as well. Some people had been to the Kentmere valley before, for others it was a nice surprise to discover this fantastic valley and get up High Street. Phil Rutter from Helm Hill Runners won the race with a massive 680 points (of 790 in total). Sue Richmond from Pennine Fell Runners was the first lady home with 488 points. Great atmosphere after the race with everybody enjoying the sunshine and the home made soup and cakes.
SUNDAY 28TH MAY
KENTMERE, LAKE DISTRICT
The second race of the 2022 Kong Mini Mountain Marathon Series will be held in the Peak District. We found a beautiful location again and will start to recce soon. We will let you know the exact location about 1 month before.
BUT BEFORE THAT: DO NOT MISS THE 2 DAY KONG MOUNTAIN MARATHON ON ARRAN IN SCOTLAND.
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
