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).
Thank you all for participating in the final race of the 2019 Kong Mini Mountain Marathon Series. We really enjoyed organising the series this year and would like to thank you all for supporting us! Today a great day, the weather was reasonable although quite misty on the moors later on. The race was won by Neil Talbott from Ambleside AC with an amazing score of 758 (23 controls!). Emma Stuart running together with James Chapman from Northern Fells RC was the first lady home with 547 points. Well done everybody! Provisional series results are also up. Please let us know if there are any errors. Prizes will be send out end of this week.
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
And we support the John Muir Trust
The 2019 Series have just finished, but we are of course already planning ahead for the 2020 Kong Mini Mountain Marathon Series. Same format, same areas, similar dates. Only difference is that we have agreed with Kong to also introduce a V65 category. The first race of the 2020 Series is on the Sunday 2nd February and will be held in North Wales. We really like this area. Last year we had deep snow if you remember, which most certainly created an interesting race experience. We will let you know a month before where the exact location is. And remember 4 for 3 offer until the end of January! Maybe a nice Xmas present.
