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.

Love these events, great fun and easy to do with my kids who are budding trail runners. They especially love enjoying the fires and atmosphere before and after. Maybe less rain next time!

This was my first Maverick event and definitely not my last!! I'm fairly new to trail runner and have certainly never done one in the dark!! That combined with the rain, the mud, the laughs, the fabulous pizza and great atmosphere made it truly unforgettable... pure escapism.... Thankyou. FAB-U-LOUS!!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Always awesome atmosphere around your events. Lots of smiles, great course, which was safe & fun! All in all a very memorable evening which was also value for money. I for one enjoyed the rain, but from an organiser I appreciate it did put a dampener on the proceedings..Thank you all, especially the Marshalls stood out in the rain on their own!.I shall of course see you for future races! Thanks guys!!

It was my first ever run let alone a trail. I’m so glad I chose to do it with the maverick crew. Very well organised and marshals were amazing with supporting the runners and keeping us on the right path especially in the hideous weather we had. They all deserve a medal.

Totally out of your control but that had to be one of the most brutal weather conditions to run in the dark ever!! Horizontal rain right in your face made for a hell of a run! Mum's dog Tilly that I canicross with was not impressed but I think the total darkness bar my head light put her off running in front, plus the thigh deep surprise puddle slowed us right down. Weirdly I still enjoyed it...made the hot bath, drink and food when I got back that much better! The medal and goodies were fab...always nice to finish and receive a bundle of rewards for you and your dogs efforts especially in those elements. Not for the faint hearted or anyone that is afraid of the pitch black....bring on the spring/summer events!
