Here's what races are available for Maverick adidas TERREX Original Kent
The course takes you through the expansive RSPB Blean Woods, now a designated National Nature Reserve. The route snakes through the classic coppice woodlands and towering forests, revealing the great British outdoors in all its grandeur.
While the course is largely well trodden and hard underfoot, there is still a strong chance of mud. The long route will take you into open farmland, and given the time of year, wet under-foot conditions are likely.
All events will have at least three refreshment stations along the course, where you can grab some quick sustenance before heading back out on the trail.

Maverick Race's logo
Maverick Race is undoubtedly one of the best trail running organisers in the UK. The company was started down on the Jurassic Coast back in 2013 by Ben and Justin. Since then they’ve delivered events which are guaranteed to take you to some of the most scenic locations in the UK. However, what really separates Maverick is their strive for inclusivity in the outdoors. From 6km entry level runs to 50km ultra marathons, there really is something for everyone. Afterwards you’ll find everyone hanging around, enjoying some fresh pizza, and speaking to like minded people with a shared passion for trail running.

Awesome event. Really well organised by Maverick and felt very safe and secure with their waved starts / touch free aid stations. The course itself was stunning and really well sign-posted. Definitely a tough 23km route though with some tough hill climbs, which meant for just under 500 metres of elevation by the end. Would really recommend for anyone looking to do a great trail run near to London - it was around a 30 minute train from Victoria to the nearest station, Meopham.

Really enjoy running with Maverick. This route had some lovely woodland stretches, but was let down by sections on busy roads. Lovely atmosphere at the start/finish, and well organised - apart from crazy lack of toilets (resulting in the race bring delayed and loads of people trying to find space to pee in private in amongst the brambles). Compared with the other Maverick routes I've done, this is the first that I wouldn't do again.

There was quite a few spots at the beginning where you had to wait and running with dogs at the beginning was tricky at times. I would suggest you have people running in groups rather than all at once. We also took a wrong turn a did an extra km or so! - but that’s probably our fault for following people and missing a turn!

I love the Mavericks but my health has not been good. I entered the middle distance but dropped to the short as not feeling my best...fab that Mavericks allow this. My only negative for the course was that there was a bit too much tarmac at the beginning and end.

I’m new to trail running and this was my first race. It was well organised and the course was really good with a mixture of surfaces to deal with.Great atmosphere and I will definitely be entering more Maverick events in 2020.

First time doing a Maverick race and it did not disappoint. Some congestion problems getting through country gates in the first couple of miles but other than that it was a great course and well organised. I will be back for more Maverick races next in 2020.

Attended my first ever Trail event in my own. Everyone very friendly and helpful. Course was extremely muddy but beautiful. Good time of year to do a run through the woods as autumn colours were stunning. Course very well signed with helpful ribbons to reassure you that you were on track. Gorgeous medal and a beer at the end! Adequate toilets and food and drink stalls.

Fab race, great atmosphere, well organised.Free photos and a finders beer! One negative - everyone gets the same medal no matter what distance

Loved this trail run, a little muddy underfoot, which only add to the experience, the only piece of advice I would offer for further events , would be to stagger the start as the amount of people + dogs running caused a few bottle necks in the first couple of kms

I'm excited to sign up for this (being my first since Feb!) but worried that with the rolling start I'll fall behind or get really lost. Is the route well-signposted as it's on trails, and what's the average pace like? Are most people very fit trail runners, or are there other newbs like me?
Stephy Dennis
Hey Ari, generally I'd say that some of the short distance runners average 4min/km for the faster guys and then 7min/km for the last finishers. This is the same on the other distances, with the long route last finishers running close to 8min/km pace. I remember that there's a sign or marking every 500m or so and loads of Marshalls. I reckon this'll be a perfect first race back!
