Back for the 4th 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.

The Maverick invov-8 Original Surrey event starts in the historic National trust grounds of the Edwardian country house of Polseden Lacey. Starting in the heart of the Polesden Lacey estate three brand new routes for 2019 consisting of long gradual climbs, alpine like forests, technical descents and stunning views, await for trail runners of all ability looking for a challenge.

Our Original Surrey event may be nestled within the grounds of a peaceful picture-perfect estate, but dont be deceived, as all three routes have a serious amount of twists, turn, up and downs that will require some fierce leg work.

All three routes take you on an adventure through ancient woodlands, the notorious Surrey hills and onto the North downs Way. In 2018 our Surrey event was one of the most popular events of the season due to its proximity to London, with direct trains from London Waterloo to Dorking taking less than 1 hour, or the drive being 90 minutes from London City straight to the race start.
