The race is 4 hours of superb Open Access fell / trail running with navigation in a Mini Mountain Marathon type score format. Food (soup, bread and cakes) & hot drinks after the race are hopefully back, but this is COVID rules permitted of course. Enter as solos or pairs in a variety of age categories.
Prices are £24 per person via on line pre-entry for FRA (Fell Runners Association) members (click here for website, membership is only £16 per year). Non FRA members prices are £27 per person online pre-entry. This includes water-resistant, full colour map, SPORTident chip timing and a hearty lunch (COVID permitted). An electronic dibber can be hired for £2 per person if you don't own one yourself. Due to COVID-19 mitigations there might be no entry on the day (still TBC, current FRA rules do not allow us to take entries on the day). Numbers are restricted to 300 so please don't leave it too late to enter!
Weather conditions/postponements/entry fees: in the event of inclement weather, we will do our utmost to run the events but safety will not be compromised under any circumstances. Should we have to postpone an event all entries and fees will be transferred to a re-scheduled date; if you cannot make this date then entry fees will be held over as a credit towards future Mini Mountain Marathons OR refunds will be given less a 25% admin fee (to cover our ongoing event costs).
Cancellations or transfers for injuries or other reasons: We don’t provide refunds and cancellations for any circumstances. Up to two weeks before the race it is possible to request a transfer to a future event in the same series (same year). After two weeks we can not honour transfers as most of the cost for the race will have been made.
If you hire a dibber from us you are responsible to return it unharmed. If you loose a dibber we will have to charge you the replacement cost of one - £30. If you break a dibber we will charge half the cost of a replacement - £15.
The category you fall in is determined based on your age on the first of January or the oldest runner in your pair. We also have an Under 23 category (based on the youngest runner in a pair), but the SiEntries system cannot apply more than one age rule. Therefore please let us know at registration and we will change the category for you.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU

The Kong Mini Mountain Marathon series 2021 comprises of four x 4 hour fell running & navigation events in North Wales, the Peak District and the Lake District (x2). Best 3 results count towards a final league score with great prizes (vouchers from our sponsor Kong Adventure). Each event is a challenging and testing event across moorland, fell or mountainous terrain. As it is a score event everybody can set out a route that matches their ability. Strong walkers are welcome. After the race there is plenty of time to share your stories with your fellow competitors over a hearty lunch with hot/cold drinks. Our homemade soup and specially the homemade cakes are well known (COVID permitted).
For the second round of the 2021 Kong Mini Mountain Marathon Series 2021, we are going to a new area the Howgills! If you're wanting to escape the Bank holiday crowds, the next event in the Howgills is the answer. It's a great area of grassy runnable terrain (maybe not the leg burning ascents!). Registration is from the Tebay sports and social club. Soup and cakes will hopefully be back!
