Maverick Camp Endeavour - Zermatt route

Friday: Maverick asks that everyone arrives at the accommodation by 1 o'clock latest. On Friday camp goers will meet at the hotel, be introduced to each other and, most importantly, get to know our expert coach Julia and view the weekend plan.

After lunch, the group will get their first taste of the Austrian alps. This will be a relatively easy 1.5 hour run to get the legs moving after a long day of travelling. At this point you will have got to know each other better and Julia can gauge abilities.

In the evening you will have your own free time to explore the area.

Saturday: After an early breakfast at the hotel, Saturday will see camp-goers take on the major run of the weekend. Over the course of 5-6 hours, runners will be taken through this trail runners heaven, nestled beneath some of Switzerland's tallest mountains. The group will stop for lunch while up on the mountains.

Following the run, there will be a group strength and mobility session to ensure everyone is injury free and feeling good.

Once again, the evening period will give you an opportunity to take in the great culture of the area.

Sunday: The final day of camp will take on another considerable run and your last chance to take in this truly spectacular part of the world. Lasting about 3 hours, the run will take you right up to lunch.

Lunch will consist of a Q&A to make sure you return home as a trail-running expert. After a quick shower, it'll be time to depart the hotel and head back home.

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.
