Maverick put on amazing events and this is just another example of that. Although the mist and rain were out to play, I wouldn’t have changed a thing! Will try and tackle the long route next time around for sure!

Great event, possible improvements :extra marshall at the top where route joins Bushy Rd would be great and maybe another water station before the final climb.

Normally a really good atmosphere at Maverick events but this one felt a little flat due to the wind and rain meaning most runners headed off straight after finishing. Would still absolutely recommend Mavericm though as wonderful locations and fun, relaxed races.

Awesome event, awesome, tough route (middle distance) fantastic post race goodies, especially the Days 0% Beer and Jimmy's Iced Coffee. I cannot recommend Maverick Races or the Mendip Original highly enough! Totally brilliant!
