New for 2019 we are venturing to the historical city of Bath. Situated on the edge of the Cotswolds this incredible city boasts stunning trails that meander through quintessentially English villages and countryside. This new Maverick event will take you on a journey into the most unexplored and unspoilt segments of the Cotswold way. We will take you past ancient monuments, hidden valleys and refreshing streams. With views that stretch across to Wales in the west, the Quantocks to the south and rolling farmland of Wiltshire to the East, this route quite literally surrounds you with the best of the great British outdoors.

The Maverick inov-8 Original Somerset routes

The three new routes we’ve trodden are suited to all levels of trail runner. The trails are hard packed in places and dotted with short sections of country lane that break up the undulating nature of the area. With up to three Hydration and Nutrition outposts out on route, we’ll keep you fuelled with; fresh fruit, GU energy gels, jelly sweets, Precision Hydration and Coke, for your full adventure.

This route is unfortunately NOT dog friendly due to gates that need to be opened and our event village being situated in Bath Racecourse where dogs are not permitted.

As with all Maverick events you can expect up to 3 on-course hydration and nutrition outposts provided by Precision Hydration & TRIBE.

As a guide you should always:

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!

Here at Maverick Race we’re all about celebrating the beauty of the British countryside. That’s why we’ve chosen some of the most iconic areas that Blighty has to offer for our trail running series. We’re not elitist though which is why we’ve made them accessible to runners of all levels. With multiple route lengths to choose from in every location, you decide on the challenge! Our main objective is to get people off the roads and enjoying being outside in the countryside. We just love to run and we hope you will too after experiencing life on the trails. Having experienced many types of events, from 5km club runs through to Ultra Marathons and Ironman Triathlons, we're dedicated to understanding what’s important to you – the runners.
