The Mountain Marathon Series (MMS) is a group of mountain marathon trail races in the spectacular Drakensberg (South Africa) and Maluti Mountains (Lesotho). The races are spread across Kwa-Zulu Natal (2) and Maluti Mountains in the Leribe District in Lesotho.

The series aims to provide challenging and spectacular mountain trail races, while also catering to spectators where possible. Each event has shorter distances of 20km, 10km and 5km that take place on the same day as the Mountain Marathon (35km – 42km).

The events may be entered individually, or multiple events, to gather Series Points.

The events vary from hotel venues (Drakenberg Northern Trail at Alpine Heath and Lesotho Ultra at the magnificent Maliba Lodge) to rustic hiking venues (Mnweni and Uitsoek). 

Each race has its own unique character and each trail marathon offers a serious challenge to trail runners keen to explore beautiful South African mountain ranges!
