Welcome to the Maverick Silva Dark Series. If you enjoy trail running in the daylight then you are in for a real treat running in the dark! It's an amazing experience; your senses are heightened, you immerse yourself deep in the surroundings, with your head torch on the trails streak past you at warp speed, you concentrate on making that perfect foot placement so as not to take a tumble.

We return to the home of the previous seasons' Sussex event at the stunning Cowdray Park. We found this route pretty spooky in the daylight so taking to the trails around here under the moon will bring a whole new element to this route. There is plenty to get the senses aroused as you head down the serpent trail, with tight conifers, the woodland is dense and dark. With only the hoot of an owl or the sound of a fox calling, you will really feel at one with nature.

This route takes in a varied terrain from woodland to open heath to sandy tracks and the occasional bog.

Suitable for all levels of trail runners and with 3 routes to choose from it’s an event you should put in your calendar. And remember - the darkness awaits...

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.

    Who knew trail running in the dark would be so fun. The route was so well marked and I loved the warm fire pits at the finish. Can’t wait to do it again!
