Maverick Race
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.

Like all the other Maverick events - this one is great. Really friendly event team & marshals, route stunning & challenging in equal measure, and always so well selected to take you down interesting, winding, eye-opening trails that you never would have expected! Obviously the beer & iced coffee at the end doesn't hurt either!
