Returning for 2017 and welcoming back the tremendous Quantock Hills, this is a seriously good route. Not only are the views captivating - the trails are brutal! The routes here are set to test your resolve and determination.
With views of the Bristol Channel, Wales, Blackdown Hills, Exmoor and the Somerset Levels you should be as inspired as one of our greatest poets, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, once was.
Team Maverick have searched the south for the finest and toughest routes. We want you to leave our event with, not only, an enormous sense of achievement but also with the beauty of the English countryside etched in to your minds. We have continued our theme of bringing you another route in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We hope you will be as taken aback as we were after running this route, with a mosaic of heathland hill tops and valley woodlands. Take in fantastic views across the hills, look out for red deer on the adjacent hill tops and the ancient oak pollards in Willoughby Cleeve. This route really has everything, from open heathland, to technical wooded single track and of course… HILLS! We look forward to welcoming you back to the finish line as true Mavericks after this one. 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 PH. 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!
