The Inov-8 Maverick Original Surrey

 Saturday 2nd June 2018

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

SUDELEY CASTLE

Back for the 4th  year in the Cotswold Hills, Britain’s first and biggest AONB, as well as the most quintessentially English place we’ve ever seen! Leaving from the grand Sudeley Castle in the heart of the Cotswold Hills and set in 1200 acres of estate land, this won’t be a walk in the park. Sitting nicely down in the bottom of a valley, the only way is up. It’ll be worth it though as the surrounding area is everything you’d 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 won’t allow you to switch off for a second, but you’ll be thankful for that as it’ll allow you to take in your surroundings which you won’t 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.

LLANBERIS

We welcome you to a whole new series; the Maverick 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.

The marathon route will summit Mt Snowdon and see you head down and cross over the mighty Glyder Faw, your second Peak at 1000m.  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 park’s 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.

COWDRAY HOUSE

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.


We return to the home of the 1st ever previous Dark Series event in Sussex - at the stunning Cowdray Park. We found this route pretty spooky in the daylight so taking to the trails around here under the moon brings a whole new element to this route. There is plenty to get the senses aroused as you head down the serpent trail, with tight conifers, the woodland is dense and dark. With only the hoot of an owl or the sound of a fox calling, you will really feel at one with nature.

This route takes in a varied terrain from woodland to open heath to sandy tracks and the occasional bog.

Suitable for all levels of trail runners and with 3 routes to choose from it’s an event you should put in your calendar. And remember - The Darkness Awaits...
