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
We are going back to Greenfield. The last race of the Kong Mini Mountain Marathon 2019 Series will be held from Greenfield on Saddleworth Moor. Last time we held the race there, in 2015, we experienced hurricane like circumstances for those who can remember. Hopefully better weather this time as the area is beautiful. The start is a remote start, c 20mins. From there there is access to Dovestone Reservoir and the Peaks and Moors behind it. Registration is from the Boarshurst Band Club, Greenbridge Lane, Greenfield, Saddleworth, OL3 7EW.

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 third race of the 2019 Kong Mini Mountain Marathon series from Loweswater in the Lake District. And what a race it was. I don't believe we have ever had this nice weather in the Lakes, but it did make the race a very hot and pretty challenging one. The views from the Wainwrights was amazing though. Tom Gomersall from Bingley Harriers AC won the race with an amazing 627 points. First lady home was Emma Stuart from Northern Fells RC who scored 469 points with her partner James Chapman. But well done to everybody for completing the race.
