The first race scheduled for the 2017 season, the Maverick inov-8 Original Sussex takes runners to the amazing South Downs National Park.
There are three brand new routes for all levels of trail runner, enabling runners to challenge the South Downs, which has a reputation for being pretty tough thanks to rolling hills and bustling market towns.
The South Downs National Park’s landscape covers 1,600sqkm of breathtaking views and hidden gems. Starting from the awesome Amberley Museum, which was built to reflect working life in the area, the routes boast a rich tapestry of wildlife and stunning landscapes that weave together to provide trail runners with some superb conditions. The location is prefect for runners looking for easy access from major cities, with a main train line just outside the venue, so there are no excuses!! Make sure this event is firmly in your 2017 calendar – it’s going to be a cracker.
As with all Maverick events you can expect up to three on-course hydration and nutrition outposts provided by Skratch Labs, plus prizes for the winners of each distance, male and female.
There are 14 races to follow, including venues in Hampshire, the Yorkshire Dales, Dorset, Surrey and Snowdonia. To find a race near you, visit http://www.maverick-race.com
