Starting in the small village of Hope in the Heart of the Peak District national Park, our Peak X-series event is back for a third time with a brand new Ultra distance route.

The Peak District event may have the least vertical ascent of our X-series races and may weave through a National Park which is known for small quaint towns, local scarecrow competitions, and rolling landscapes frequently used in film adaptations of Jane Austen novels, but don’t be fooled these four routes will require all your trail running strength.

Our Peak District event starts off steep by taking you up the famous Win Hill, where all runners will then take in the famous Lady Bower Reservoir. The routes don’t get easier as the local tors just keep coming until the last few kilometres where all runners summit Lose Hill before descending back into the village of Hope.

The Ultra Distance has been added to the Peaks event for 2019, this takes you out to a new area of the peak district, winding down through valleys, crossing stunning streams and climbing up to Alport Castle, before heading across some open moorland where the Famous grouse roam. You will then re-join the marathon route and continue on towards black ashop moor.

Whether you’re coming from South Wales, South England or the City of London, the village of Hope in the Peak district is centrally located and easily accessible for trails of all abilities to set themselves an serious challenge. With a train station located in the village of Hope itself those in London can leave from St. Pancras and be at our venue in less than 3 hours, ready for a trail run event that they won’t forget.

Maverick inov-8 X Series Peak District routes

You will leave the small village of Hope and head out towards Win Hill an impressive climb taking you to 462m (1,516ft) this will give you amazing views over the Ladybower Reservoir which is situated in the Upper Derwent Valley at the heart of the Peaks National Park, in an area It is surrounded by magnificent countryside where water and woodland, topped by high moors meet in stunning fashion.

From there you will run the edge of the reservoir, but don’t open the legs up to much as you will need plenty in reserve to tackle Kinder Scout which  is a high windswept upland gritstone plateau, most of which stands at around 600 metres above sea level. The highest point is Crowden Head, which at 631 metres is also the highest point in the Peak District. This is the largest and grandest of the great upland areas of the so-called ‘Dark Peak’ and it forms an imposing and fascinating area. This route just has to be seen to believe.

We have 4 routes for you to choose from. Please select carefully as the X Series and Ultra Series is not for the faint hearted. You can expect up to 5 on-course hydration and nutrition outposts. There will also be prizes for the winners of each distance, male and female.

  • Did the Ultra - 69km in 2019

    Maverick Peak District Ultra was an absolutely amazing race! Stunning scenery, great support along the route, very well stocked checkpoints stations (not just jelly babies and crisps but good selections of fruit-watermelon was a hit on that sunny day, electrolytes (spot on!), and many more). Nutrition is obviously a key when undertaking any exercise and one could tell that people who prepared checkpoint stations knew their stuff. Moreover, the race was very well marked, no chance of getting lost. The overall organisation was superb, probably one of the best I have seen during my running adventures. Maverick folks are also extremely friendly, positive vibe from beginning to the end. The course was challenging (technical in places), lots of hills, some forestry paths, a bit of gravel, some moorlands here and there, breathtaking scenery, generally awesome running experience. I would run it again, maybe longer distance (100k). Thank you all at Maverick for a truly great day out in the hills!

    Did the Ultra - 69km in 2019

    Fantastic fun! I did the full and was amazed at how much I enjoyed it! The volunteers/aid station helpers seemed to genuinely care about you and your race, whatever your pace. The great weather was also a lovely bonus! And the food (running far = permission to EAT) provided at each station was amazing. Gu gels and tribe bars and watermelon! Can’t wait for the next event I enter with you!

    Firstly the Peaks are incredible. Secondly Maverick are so skilled at creating races that go through the very best parts of an area! This race is stunning. It’s a hard test but is rewarding on so many levels. Rarely have I seen an atmosphere so good too. So friendly, welcoming and fun. This event is special!
