You can enjoy running through the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, along Nine Barrow Down taking in some of the most fantastic views with Poole Harbour to your left and the beautiful seaside town of Swanage to your right.

With 3 routes to choose from: 

The Short Route

 this trail is perfect for your first venture into the amazing world of trail running, with a mellow climb from the venue to warm the legs. you then head onto some single track underneath nine barrow down, before you take on the chalky ascent its nastier than it looks so dont go off to fast! once you reach the top you will find yourself surrounded by a panoramic view of the isle of purbeck, with views stretching over to the isle of Wight one way and North Dorset the other. The final section of the route will follow the ridge line down with views of Corfe castle in the distance, open up the legs and let your worries run away as you head back to the finish line for your much deserved Medal and Maverick Treats.

Middle Route

The Middle route is a superb route for any runners looking to challenge themselves, with some steep climbs, open heathlands, and stunning pine forrest's. this route really does show the isle of Purbeck in all its glory you will spend most of your time soaking up the views and forgetting about the pain in your legs. all we require is the Maverick 100% good weather Guarantee.

Long Route

The Long route is tough but achievable for all levels of runner, This route takes in Old Harry Rocks, wild garlic woodlands, the heathlands around Agglestone and the forest through the Rempstone Estate. the trail is hard packed, and well suited to an inov-8 Trail talon style shoe.

the route will have 3 Nutrition  outposts on filled with fresh fruit, water, flat coke, electrolyte based fluids and fizzy cola bottles! we will get you to the end no matter what. 

If you’re only planning on doing one of the Maverick Original trail series then make it this one, it will leave you breathless… literally! We are pretty confident that this route is the finest in Dorset.
