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.

The Kong Mini Mountain Marathon series 2022 comprises of three x 4 hour fell running & navigation events in the Lake District, the Peak District and North Wales. The exact location of the event will be announced one month before the race. Best 2 results count towards a final league score with great prizes (vouchers from our sponsor Kong Adventure). We only do three races in 2022 due to some special circumstances and will be back with the normal four races in the series and an evening race in 2023. 

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.
