About
Competitors must reach as many checkpoints as possible in this 4hr mountain epic. The further the checkpoint, the more lucrative the score but be warned, returning late will incur penalties! This race involves plenty of pre race navigational planning, so is great those looking for more than a race.

Route information
A map with control points is provided just after the start. It is then important to plan your route well and of course navigate well using your compass. Route planning is as important as speed!The event is primarily for fell and trail runners, but in the past we have also seen strong walkers participate. Navigation skills are a must. As the control points can be visited in random order, everyone can make a route that fits with their ability. You don't have to be Joss Naylor to participate. And because we use electronic dibbers to record the control points you have visited, you can start when you like and a mass start is not necessary. This makes it more relaxed and interesting as you will only know what position you have achieved when all runners have finished. After the event a race lunch will be provided and you can share your stories with your fellow runners.

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.
