The Maverick inov-8 Original Kent routes

RSPB Blean Woods is a designated National Nature Reserve and covers over 500 hectares of woods and heathlands. As you adventure through these trails a mosaic of magical landscapes will unfold beneath your feet and reveal themselves in-front of your eyes. Alongside traditional coppice woodlands and high forests comes the almost mystical glades. These routes showcase an enormous variety of the great British outdoors and the eclectic flora and fauna that make the great outdoors so great. Keep an eye out for; woodpeckers, nightingale, dormice and rare butterflies to name a few.

The Trails around Blean are mostly hard packed, although the long route will take in open farmland which in November could certainly mean MUD! The three routes will have up to three Hydration and Nutrition outposts where we welcome you to take a break, fuel up and get some much needed hydration on board.

As with all Maverick events you can expect up to 3 on-course hydration and nutrition outposts provided by Precision Hydration & TRIBE. There will also be prizes for the winners of each distance, male and female.

  • Follow the on course signage
  • Listen to on course marshals
  • Take care when crossing roads
  • Be considerate to others
  • Please close all gates, DO NOT litter!

    Put simply, the best race organisation and series in the country, and a completely brilliant team and set of volunteers.

    Did the Middle in 2018

    So well organised, friendly marshals, great healthy and delicious food and even welcoming to dogs! The three distance options were great to cater for all of my friends that also came to run with me.
  • Did the Long in 2018

    What a beautiful race. Challenging and so enjoyable. Can’t think of a race that has been organised better. Just superb!
