Our festival is designed to bring our runners together to celebrate, eat, drink and, of course, race!

You'll get a free beer on entry as well as having the opportunity to buy food and drink from our amazing vendors.

There will be 2 race routes to choose from, each at around 8km and you will be aiming to run as many loops as you can in 6 hours. You'll be able to enter our race in one of three categories; Solo (just you and your running shoes), Pairs (hand over to a mate when you need a break!), or Team Entry (4 runners to spread the load). Whatever you choose, the atmosphere will inspire you and the music is sure to drive you to the finish.

Race! Run as many loops as you can in 6 hours. Further entertainment will be available throughout the day including: a 9 metre climbing wall with kids' bouldering wall (3-10yrs), mobility sessions including stretching and strengthening tips, yoga classes, sponsors and trade stands, catering, a kids 2km fun loop, and a mini assault course.

New for 2018, we have added a beast of a route. This is the toughest Inov-8 X Series route on our calendar, with over 2300m of elevation, it's 300m higher than the Inov-8 Snowdonia X Series event! That should give you some idea of the challenge that awaits you here in Devon.

We are sending you along part of The South West Coast Path which is England's longest waymarked long-distance footpath and a National Trail. It stretches for 630 miles (1,014 km), running from Minehead in Somerset, along the coasts of Devon and Cornwall, to Poole Harbour in Dorset. Since it rises and falls with every river mouth, it is also one of the more challenging trails. The total height climbed has been calculated to be 114,931 ft (35,031 m), almost four times the height of Mount Everest

The route starts at Caffyns Farm and heads along the coast path at Lynton, you will be met with towering cliffs and stunning sea views across to South Wales. Soak up the stunning sounds of seabirds nesting on the cliffs. As you venture along the coast you will enter the valley of rocks, a superb section of coast path well know for its herds of feral goats. This section is among the oldest Devonian rocks in north Devon and is highly fossil ferrous.

As you continue on your way you will become lost in the splendour. We take you to Foreland Point, a rocky headland which is the most northerly point along the Devon and Exmoor coastline.

The route then sweeps back inland towards some special forested sections that make you feel like you're back in the heart of Devon. One stand out area is Watersmeet, we know you will be enchanted by this section of the route. There are many other hidden gems on the Exmoor X Series event, we dont want to spoil it too much for you, so come and join us! The outdoors awaits...

Back for the 3nd year in the Cotswold Hills, Britains first and biggest AONB, as well as the most quintessentially English place weve ever seen! Leaving from the grand Sudeley Castle in the heart of the Cotswold Hills and set in 1200 acres of estate land, this wont be a walk in the park. Sitting nicely down in the bottom of a valley, the only way is up. Itll be worth it though as the surrounding area is everything youd expect to see from rural middle England. With technical single track, wooded trails and some locally famous national routes on the Cotswold Way, Gloucestershire Way and the Winchcombe Way. The course wont allow you to switch off for a second, but youll be thankful for that as itll allow you to take in your surroundings which you wont want to miss.

Why not bring the family to take a wander around the beautiful Castle and Gardens. Sudeley is the only privately owned castle in England to have a queen buried in the garden Katherine Parr, 6th wife of Henry VIII.

We welcome you to a whole new series; the Maverick X Series is designed to test your resolve and take you to the upper limits of your abilities. The Peak District X Series event is a must in your calendar for 2018 - it has been dubbed the Lake District of the Peaks.

You will leave the small village of Hope and head out towards Win Hill, an impressive climb taking you to 462m (1,516ft) with amazing views over the Ladybower Reservoir. The reservoir is situated in the Upper Derwent Valley at the heart of the Peaks National Park, in an area that is surrounded by magnificent countryside where water and woodland, topped by high moors meet in stunning fashion.

From there you will run the edge of the reservoir, but dont open the legs up too much as you will need plenty in reserve to tackle Kinder Scout which is a high windswept upland gritstone plateau, most of which stands at around 600 metres above sea level. The highest point is Crowden Head, which at 631 metres is also the highest point in the Peak District. This is the largest and grandest of the great upland areas of the so-called 'Dark Peak' and it forms an imposing and fascinating area. This route just has to be seen to believed.

We return to the impressive Groombridge Place a moated manor house dating back to 1662 and home to the Bennet Family in Joe Wrights film adaptation of Jane Austens novel, Pride and Prejudice.

Soak up the Garden of England in this end of the summer season trail run. Not too hilly but rolling enough to keep your heart rate up and with some more technical sections, your mind will be elsewhere! The Maverick Original Kent is a real treat. With varying terrains from the impressive Harrisons Rock, which looks like its straight out of a theme park, to the more open heathland of White Hill Down and the woodland of the RSPB Broadwater Nature Reserve.

We cant think of a better place to bring the summer season to a close than here. Close to Royal Tunbridge Wells, the M25 and Brighton only 30 miles away, why not bring the family and make a day of it? Groombridge Place is offering all runners and families 25% off admission with lots to explore including outdoor adventure playgrounds in the Enchanted Forest, the fort and Crusoes World, with its authentic large wooden ship complete with rope bridges.

We welcome you to a whole new series; the Maverick Inov-8 X Series events are designed to test your resolve and take you to the upper limits of your abilities. We venture to The Snowdonia National Park known as Eryri in Welsh, a name that can be translated as the place of the eagles.

The park which covers 838 square miles is one of three national parks found in Wales, and the oldest - being designated in 1951. The area of the Snowdonia National Park has so much to offer the trail runner that if you are visiting for the first time you will wonder why it took you so long.

Marathon route will summit Mt Snowdon and see you head down and cross over the mighty Glyder Faw, your second Peak at 1,000m. We are pretty confident that this is the toughest marathon that Snowdonia has seen.

The landscape is breathtaking and unique. There are nine mountain ranges here and they cover over half of the national parks surface. But the mountains are not the only reason people are enchanted by this landscape. There are many river gorges, waterfalls and valleys. Forests are filled with ash, oak, rowan and hazel trees.

Welcome to the Maverick Original Oxforshire, starting from the beautiful Stonor Park. This is one of the oldest family estates still lived in today but its no museum. As the oldest member of the Stonor family, the house has a thousand stories to tell.

The route itself, keeping the theme running, is in The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which covers 324 square miles of countryside, stretching from the River Thames in southern Oxfordshire up through Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire to Hitchin in Hertfordshire. It is one of 38 AONB in England and Wales, which belong to the same family as National Parks. Its designation as an AONB in 1965 recognised that the Chiltern Hills contain some of the finest landscapes in the country which are worthy of protection at the highest level.

This location is ideal for city based trail runners with excellent transport links to nearby Henley-on-Thames. Put this on your list of fantastic trail runs for 2018 and become part of the Maverick family. Remember the outdoors awaits
