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

A beautiful area with deep valleys, beautiful tarns and famous tops like Harrison Stickle, Pike of Stickle and High Raise. The start is from the Langdale village hall in Chapel Stile.

Thank you all for participating in one of the toughest races so far, from a snow perspective that is. The snow was knee deep on the mountains and in gullies waist deep. It was very slow going, but despite this all of you managed to get round without issues and all got back safely and, most important, with a smile. Thank you for that! Ian Jones from ERYRI Orienteers was first with 460 points in 3:58:20. Jonathan Whilock and Richard Kendall came close with the same point totals. First lady home was Eleanor Johnstone from Pennine Fell Runners with 396 points.
