Maverick Race
Maverick Race is undoubtedly one of the best trail running organisers in the UK. The company was started down on the Jurassic Coast back in 2013 by Ben and Justin. Since then they’ve delivered events which are guaranteed to take you to some of the most scenic locations in the UK. However, what really separates Maverick is their strive for inclusivity in the outdoors. From 6km entry level runs to 50km ultra marathons, there really is something for everyone. Afterwards you’ll find everyone hanging around, enjoying some fresh pizza, and speaking to like minded people with a shared passion for trail running.

The 28k was a little firm under foot to really be called a trail run, however the longer courses do offer the trail experience, and I will be running it again next year to beat my time.

Tough course at times. The last hill at the ultra marathon was way too long to start at 40km and finish at 46km..

Only feedback really is that this was my first trail and did the middle course. There was only one hydration station at 8k then none after that. Also, perhaps an oversight on my part but I did not realize we needed our own cups for the drinks so I was unable to have any of the drinks
