Route information
All 3 of these routes will involve some serious climbs and descents, with some chunky elevation! The routes will follow the West Mendip Way, through the forests of Rowebarrow Warren but the star of this route is the climb up the highest hill in the Mendips, to Black Down heathland.
There'll be plenty of views of the Somerset landscape throughout these rotes, including some celebrated wildlife such as the herds of feral goats, Soay sheep and Peregrine falcons.

Did the race in 2023
Unfortunately, I fell ill during the race, and was unable to fully appreciate the beautiful course I was running. I did manage to complete it, but I look forward to running it again, in better health.

If you’re going to run, you may as well do it with Maverick. The best organisers, stunning courses, the best medals, the best pre, during and post run fuel provided AND THERE ARE DOGS. What more could you want?!
Did the race in 2023
Brilliant event and challenging course. Need some more toilets or preferably some urinals so people don’t have to start queuing for the toilet 30 minutes before the start.
Did the race in 2023
Absolutely loved the race, great atmosphere, great course. Could do with more toilets!
Did the race in 2023
It was my first ever trail run and I loved it. Thanks so much to the organisers for putting on such a good event!
Did the race in 2023
Loved the vibe at the base camp with all the stalls and freebies. The course was great, really challenging and fun, maybe just put on a few more toilets next time :)
Did the race in 2023
You really needed more toilets! The queue was ridiculous.

The Maverick cool kids just keep getting cooler.
Did the race in 2023
Another really good varied trail route from Maverick, great views, challenging with a lot of elevation in a half marathon, OMG that last 2km of climb!! A few things to consider, these events should have a gents urinal area to keep the loo Q down. I understand the current vogue for low carbon wooden medals, i'd happily forgo an event T shirt, but there's nothing quite like a well designed metal medal. Keep up the good work Maverick, i'll be back.

Insufficient toilets for the runners , leading to long queues, good otherwise.
