Run Leaders for the Maverick Run Project are the people who make our social runs possible. They know their local area better than we do so they go out and find routes that they think you'll enjoy. Below is the information about the Run Leader for this particular social run.
I started running in 2017 to lose weight and very quickly discovered that trails are super fun. One thing led to another and I found myself doing my first marathon with Maverick - all 29 miles of Peak District.
Having booked it whilst feeling sorry for myself with a broken ankle I didn't really expect to make it round but with support, I learned we can all do these things, and have an amazing time of it. That's the spirit I now try to share with people, the trails are amazing, beautiful, tough but oh so rewarding and we can all enjoy them.
By day I'm a super boring research scientist so fun in the hills is what I live for!
Sophie organises this run once a month at the weekend. Click on the "View & Enter Sessions" button to see times and dates.
This route takes in so many of the aspects that make the Peak District beautiful and special. We'll start with a gently undulating footpath through fields, along the river and past the grade II listed Froggatt bridge. A steady climb then leads to a beautiful fairy woodland filled with old abandoned millstones. After a short detour to see the flowing stream through Padley Gorge we will climb up to finish with some great running along the gritstone edges with the best views.
