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 second race of the 2019 Series. A great day with good visibility. Not as sunny whilst setting out controls yesterday, but dry. Quite windy and cold on the tops though. The area is spectacular with many, many route choices. Everybody made it back safely, with also quite a few runners who were a bit too ambitious, but that's fine as long as everybody had a nice day out. Congratulations to the overall winners - Matthew Elkington from Ambleside AC with 695 points (wow!) and Kirsty Bryan-Jones / Helen Elmore, first ladies home with 547 points. Well done everybody!
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 third race of the Kong Mini Mountain Marathon 2019 Series will be held again in the Lake District. We will be announcing the location c2 months before as it is on the August bank holiday and we would like to give you the chance to book accommodation in advance.
2 HOUR EVENING RACE SATURDAY 18TH MAY
Before that though we have a 2 hour evening race in Dovedale. One of our favourites as it is held from our local village pub in Thorpe where we live. A brilliant area, with some very tough terrain. Why not have a go!
