Just like the Peak District National Park is central to England, our Peak District Merlin Ultra trail race is the central piece to the Maverick Adidas Terrex calendar. 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! Please note, there is no outpost on the Short route.

Start times: Ultra & Long: 08:00am, Middle & Short: 09:00am

About Maverick Race

Here at Maverick Race we’re all about celebrating the beauty of the British countryside. That’s why we’ve chosen some of the most iconic areas that Blighty has to offer for our trail running series. We’re not elitist though which is why we’ve made them accessible to runners of all levels. With multiple route lengths to choose from in every location, you decide on the challenge!

Our main objective is to get people off the roads and enjoying being outside in the countryside. We just love to run and we hope you will too after experiencing life on the trails. Having experienced many types of events, from 5km club runs through to Ultra Marathons and Ironman Triathlons, we're dedicated to understanding what’s important to you – the runners.

Support the club so we can do bigger and better things and get access to additional benefits.
