Just like the Peak District National Park is central to England, our Peak District X Series event is the central piece to the Maverick Adidas Terrex X Series program. It is the long-distance event that over the years our Maverick Trail runners have returned to time and time again. You come looking for a challenge and you are not disappointed. You come searching for adventure and you leave with expectations greatly exceeded.
The four routes all start in the spectacular Bakewell Showground before taking you out into the National Park were constantly varied and mixed terrain will keep you on your toes. Our four new routes will take you over high moor and down through river valleys. You’ll crisscross over old railways and summit the highest peaks in the park. You’ll join the iconic well-trodden Pennine footpath in parts, and explore lesser beaten tracks in others. Whilst never being far from a breathtaking view or lung-busting set of stone steps!
Our Peak X Series event will have you hit all the edges of the park taking you through; Bamford, Hathersage, Curbar, Froggatt and Stanage, meaning you’ll get a fully immersive experience and feel for this incredible place. We can’t wait to welcome you to our brand new Peak district event, with a distance and route for everyone not to mention the addition of a Team competition. Every year since it’s conception, this location has sold out so grab a place to run whilst you can. #theoutdoorsawaits

In our quest to make this season plastic-free, we ask that you run with a reusable cup or bottle. Hydrapak Speed Cups are available to purchase at each event and online.
Choose your route carefully. The distance and elevation gain should give you some indication as to how easy/hard each route is, as well as showing you where the tougher climbs are.
