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.

The series uses footpaths and areas of open access around the Peak District. 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!
The races have a time limit of 2 hours, all controls score 20 points and there is a penalty of -10 points for each minute late.
The MapRun app allows you to compare your performance with others using the online leader board and tracks.
The first race goes live on Saturday 25th March with a series launch in Great Longstone, then a new event will be released at the beginning of May, June and July. All four races count towards the overall competition.
The series results will be updated at the end of each month and will be published on the Explorer Events website: www.explorerevents.co.uk
