Bringing back a Mountain Marathon to Scotland

We are really pleased to announce that the team that brings you the popular and successful Kong Mini-Mountain Marathons is bringing back a Two Day Mountain Marathon to Scotland.

We – the Wainwrights and the Van Vroenhovens – are keen fell runners and participants in Mountain Marathons and we were very sad to see the Highlander, the LAMM and the Scottish Mountain Marathon all finish. We have organised the Kong Mini Mountain-Marathons for the last 5 years and feel we are ready to bring a bigger event like this to the fell running community.

As we know that many people like to participate in the Jura fell race and combine that with a Mountain Marathon the weekend after, we have decided to organise the new Mountain Marathon on the first weekend in June in this case the 5th and 6th of June 2021.

Kong Running, a brilliant shop and climbing centre in Keswick, has been sponsoring our Kong Mini Mountain Marathons for the last 3 years and have agreed to sponsor this new event as well, therefore the new Mountain Marathon will be called the ‘Kong Mountain Marathon’ or ‘the Kong’.
