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.
