Route information
The main 7.2k race route initially climbs steeply up Bunster Hill before descending into the Dovedale valley. The run then follows the picturesque River Dove for a short tarmac section before crossing the iconic stepping stones followed by a steep and unrelenting climb up to the summit of Flagpole Hill. After a short ridge run the race ascends the limestone hill known as Thorpe Cloud before another long descent and a fast finish across the fields by the Izaak Walton Hotel back to the finish at Ilam Hall.

Mini Mountain Marathon
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.
