The Kong Mini Mountain Marathon series 2018 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.
The second race of the 2018 Series will be held on Sunday 8th April from Glenridding, Ullswater in the Lake District. A beautiful, wild and challenging area, including famous wainwrights like Helvellyn and Great Dodd. The views are amazing. Quite a lot of snow and ice when we recced the area, but hopefully that will be gone by April.

Prices are £22 per person via on line entry or £26 on the day. This includes water-resistant, full colour map, SPORTident chip timing and lunch. An electronic dibber can be hired for £2 per person if you don't own one yourself. For most races we do have entry on the day available, but as we might not have enough maps or electronic hire dibbers, it is best to call us on 07760 558031 or 07469 895267 or email us on email@example.com to check if there are places available
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.
