The Maverick Adidas Terrex X and Ultra Peaks

26th - | Bakewell Showground

Just like the Peak District National Park is central to England, our Peak District X-Ultra event is the central piece to the Maverick Adidas Terrex X-Ultra 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. This year for 2020 we have a NEW venue and FOUR new routes that will allow you to experience challenge and adventure in the Peak District like it’s the very first time.

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 new Peak X-Ultra event will have you hit all the edges of the park taking you through; Bamford, Hathersage, Curbar, Frogatt 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
