Maverick x TRIBE Run Free routes


These courses are designed to test you, however with three different routes there really is an option for everyone.

All routes will take runners through the Hollycombe Forest with its towering trees either side of you, before bursting into the surrounding open plains where runners will behold panoramic views across the South Downs National Park.

This event is in conjunction with TRIBE community, who will be helping to turn the race-day village into a vibrant hub of activity, music, food and drink - all in celebration of the great British outdoors.

    First time doing a maverick event and it was amazing! I loved the relaxed atmosphere, it was really well organised, parking was ample and easy, and the course was fantastic (if just a tad muddy!!). The post race goodies were awesome and I loved the live music and fire pits. Can’t wait to do another event, thank you to everyone involved in the organisation!

    Did the Middle in 2020

    Great event my only slight criticism was the start should have been more staggered to avoid the huge waits at various style / gate crossings. All it would need is some time between the short, middle & long start times and it would be ok. Admittedly it wasn't helped by the extremely muddy conditions but waiting for 10mins to climb over a style is quite frustrating not to mention cold when its raining!

    Awesome event loved it! Wave starts would work better as it was very stop/start at the beginning & queues through narrow paths & over stiles

    Did the Long in 2020

    Joined the event with my son Rob although we didn't run together as he was rather pacier than me! I have been increasing my weekly mileage over the last few weeks and so was confident about finishing. The Somme-like mud was a challenge but I loved the whole event and vibe. This was my first competitive off-road event since Norfolk School Boys Cross Country in 1976! But not my last. See you next time. Andrew Dawson

    My first trail race and part of the reason I picked this one is because I'd read how friendly Maverick races are. All volunteers on the day welcoming, friendly & helpful. Great atmosphere to chill out at afterwords. Course very well marked so no fear of getting lost. Big hills, lots of mud, huge amount of fun.
