The Maverick Adidas Terrex Original - New Forest routes


With its immense variety of woodland and abundance of local wildlife, the New Forest presents an incredible backdrop to race in. All three courses commence from the same place within the Hamley inclosure - with the short route remaining within the enclosures boundary.

At this stage, the medium and long route will dart in and out of the Brownhill and Wilverly enclosures before heading out into the surrounding grassy expanses.

Although largely a gravel surface underfoot, these trails tend to get muddy in the winter months. While the routes are designed to challenge, there is a length for everyone and this is the perfect opportunity to start your New Year the right way.

    Maverick events are always so we'll organised, the start/finish area is well supported with food and drink available and good tunes to boot. The route in the New Forest is absolutely stunning taking in some of the best sights and areas. Maverick races are always hugely fun, relaxed, well signed and supported. They're a must!!

    This was another well organised event from Maverick to lock off their season.
    As always a lovely, challenging course set in beautiful surroundings.
    Maverick races are always so friendly, with no sense of elitism that you get at some events.
    The chilled out vibe with great food and drink and all facilities that are required are on offer.

    I love the New Forest races - flatter routes for faster running = getting to the finish line faster for beer and good vibes.
  • Did the Long in 2019

    This event is excellent. Stunning trails, fast, some tricky hills and a great race as an intro into trail running. Maverick organisation and atmosphere are second to none. They are an exceptional company to run with. The very best.

    This was my first ever trail run, and was brilliant! Friendly team, great and well marked course, and a brilliant atmosphere. The organisation was really slick - quick registration, parking etc well signed, and lots of folks around to answer questions. A brilliant way to start the year, and to start my trail running adventure!

    Really well organised event from the start with some great sponsors helping create a friendly, inclusive atmosphere before the event even started. The course itself was stunning with a good mixture of forest and open grassland trails. Fairly flat, which made it a great first event of the calendar year. The aid stations were well stocked and plastic free. Again, at the end the support and atmosphere was great to be a part of, regardless of whether you were the first or last runner in. A really professional, well-run and fun event. Thoroughly recommend!
