POLESDEN LACEY HOUSE
Polesden Lacey, this historic location serves up some incredible trails. “This is a delicious house,” remarked Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother on her honeymoon at Polesden Lacey. This country retreat, only four miles from Dorking and junction 9 of the M25, has glorious views across the rolling Surrey hills and acres of countryside. It was home to famous Edwardian hostess Mrs Greville, who entertained royalty and the celebrities of her time. The routes we have designed here in the Surrey hills are intended to test you and if there’s one word that describes this event it’s – Brutiful! With more ups and downs than a ride at Thorpe Park, this course will have you reaching for your water bottles faster than you know it. We don’t plot routes to make them easy – we want you to become a Maverick and challenge yourself. With 3 routes to choose from, there’s something for everyone here in Polesden. If you have family members who want to soak up the atmosphere then bring them along for a stroll in the historic grounds. Or they can cheer you on and grab a bite to eat from the guys at the venue. Whatever you decide, we’re sure you’ll have an epic day out here with the Mavericks, and remember – the outdoors awaits...
How it works
As with all Maverick events you can expect up to 3 on-course hydration and nutrition outposts provided by Skratch Labs. There will also be prizes for the winners of each distance, male and female.
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!
