Covid 19 Update

Following the introduction of the National Lockdown: Stay at Home we have taken the decision to pause the Peak Raid MapRunF Winter Series for the next few weeks.

It is still possible to enter each event, or the series, but entrants will not receive the course details until the lockdown restrictions are eased.

As soon as we have a better idea of the future easing of the lockdown restrictions, we will send an email update to everyone who has entered. This will confirm the details for the relaunch of the series, when events will go live and the key dates.

Event 1 Monsal Head will remain live and open for anyone who has previously entered. However, we must remind everyone to stick to the rules, stay local and only travel a short distance.

There is some good news! We have some great new MapRun courses planned and waiting to go live. The events visit quieter parts of the Peak District and areas that are completely new for Peak Raid.  The events use specially produced maps and offer fantastic running and navigating through excellent peakland hills and dales!

We apologise for any inconvenience our decision to pause the series may cause and wish to thank everyone for continued support and understanding during this continually challenging time.

If you have any questions please get in touch via info@explorerevents.co.uk

Please respect the Government’s Covid 19 Restrictions for the area in which you live. 

Peak Raid MapRunF - Winter Series Event 1 of 4  - Monsal Head

After the success of the summer MapRunF series, we have set up a new challenge for the winter months. 

The first event of the winter series has an impressive start location on the western side of the Monsal Head Viaduct and visits Cressbrook Dale, Miller's Dale and the surrounding limestone hills and dales. The course will challenge your decision making, navigation and fitness! Will you head north to the lonely summit of Wardlow Hay Cop and Peter's Stone or west to visit the southern slopes of Water cum Jolly? 

If you haven't tried a Peak Raid event before, think fell running requiring good route choice and navigation skills. The events use footpaths and areas of open access around the Peak District, providing great running in more remote ‘off the beaten track’ locations. 

Each of the four events have a time limit of 2 hours, all controls score 20 points and there is a penalty of -10 points for each minute late. You can take part in each event as many times as you wish, and at any time you choose. Enter one event or the whole series.

About the events:

  • The events can be run at any time using MapRunF - more information and download here.
  • Entrants will receive an email containing a PDF map to print off, the course pin code and further details.
  • Using specially prepared and recently updated maps.
  • There are no control markers in place but your phone or watch gps will confirm your visit to each control site.
  • Courses will go live on December 18th and then on the 18th of January, February and March.
  • Entrants of the whole series will receive an email containing a link to each event shortly before they go live.
  • All courses can be completed at any time, in any order and as many times as you wish. They do not need to be completed in the month they go live. 
  • The final date for completing the series will be confirmed by email. Due to Covid 19 this date will be reviewed and most likely will be extended
  • Final series result will be based upon the combined points, and time taken totals, of all four events.
  • Record your run using MapRunF, MaRunG or any gps enabled watch that can record a .gpx file - more details here

The series results will be updated shortly after the 18th of each month and will be published on the MapRun Results page.
