Awesome to be back racing again and hats off to Ben and the team at Maverick for getting a COVID secure race up and running so quickly. A stunning route all along the coastal footpaths of the Isle of Purbeck with some really punishing hills thrown in. Sadly the drizzle and mist meant the views weren't what they might have been, but definitely rather that than trying to run in the heatwave we had earlier in the week. Can't wait for the next one!

One of my absolute favorite races of all time, and not just because I am a local! The varied terrain is used to the max in Mavericks excellent route planning and signposting - from sand, grass, rocks and heathland, up and down some serious coastal hills, this event is simply stunning. Plus you are welcomed by the Maverick vibe that is unlike any other race I've been to here or anywhere else.
