Peak Raid MapRun 2022 Series – Run hard, run easy, run anytime!

After the success of the 2021 Series with over 300 competitors taking part, Peak Raid MapRun is back – and now with the option of a professionally printed map.

Enjoy the freedom to compete with others at anytime you choose.

Think fell running requiring good route choice and navigation skills. The courses are planned to provide great running in more remote ‘off the beaten track’ locations, along footpaths and over areas of open access land in the Peak District. All events have a score format so you select your own route and run as hard or as easy as you like!

MapRun is great fun and you can take part at any time you choose. All you need to do is download the MapRun6 app onto your phone, or use a Garmin watch and MapRunG, select an event and go – it really is that easy! You can also use any GPS enabled device and send us your .gpx or .fit file.

Guidance on using the MapRun app can be found here:
