Back for the 4th year in the Cotswold Hills, Britain’s first and biggest AONB, as well as the most quintessentially English place we’ve ever seen! Leaving from the grand Sudeley Castle in the heart of the Cotswold Hills and set in 1200 acres of estate land, this won’t be a walk in the park. Sitting nicely down in the bottom of a valley, the only way is up. It’ll be worth it though as the surrounding area is everything you’d expect to see from rural middle England. With technical single track, wooded trails and some locally famous national routes on the Cotswold Way, Gloucestershire Way and the Winchcombe Way. The course won’t allow you to switch off for a second, but you’ll be thankful for that as it’ll allow you to take in your surroundings which you won’t want to miss.

Why not bring the family to take a wander around the beautiful Castle and Gardens. Sudeley is the only privately owned castle in England to have a queen buried in the garden – Katherine Parr, 6th wife of Henry VIII.

    Love these races so much, think they're really well organised, the atmos is really good, I did my first run last year.. and now like a stalker i'm following the Maverick trails around the UK ( within reason ) me and my car don't do too well on epic jouneys! Gloucestershire one is SO PRETTY, 2019 was the second year for me for this race... maybe next year i'll have to up my game and try the medium route :O Post race goodies get two massive thumbs up from me as well.. we all love a medal and these are great.. and hand me a beer anytime i'll be happy! :)

    Great info before and on the event. Well marshalled and clear signage.
    Really friendly event run by people who are trail runners themselves. Highly recommended.

    Every Maverick race is extremely well organised and has an excellent atmosphere. This and all courses are extremely well thought out and offer a challenge for all runners of any level. What I really appreciate though is the feeling of accessibility, regardless of your running ability. Maverick have done a huge amount to make Trail running accessible to all and the beer at the end is a great touch.
