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.
Dark Dorset had to join the series for 2018. Dorset is the home of Maverick Race and we head to the secluded location of Burnbake, deep in Rempstone Forest. A perfect location for our pre-Xmas Dark event, the route takes in woodland, heath and some open pastures. Rempstone Forest is a stone's throw away from Poole Harbour and parts of the route will take you along the tributaries that supply water to the famous RSPB Arne Reserve. This area is famous for its birdlife and whilst running the trails around Rempstone you might be lucky enough to see Sika deer or the odd barn owl! The Dorset Dark routes are designed for all levels of runner, with very little elevation these 3 routes can test you in a different way......Open up the legs and hit a PB in the Dark......The Darkness awaits...
