Culden Faw Estate, Dairy Lane, Hambleden, Henley-on-Thames, RG9 3AS
Maverick Race and Jimmy's Iced Coffee are proud to present to you the Summit Festival at Culden Faw Estate. If you want the most epic festival atmosphere coupled with great running then this is an event you cannot miss.
Our festival is designed to bring our runners together to celebrate, eat, drink and, of course, race! You'll need to bring a tent and camping gear and tickets are available for both runners and spectators (under 12s go for free). You'll get a free beer on entry as well as having the opportunity to buy food and drink from our amazing vendors.
There will be 2 race routes to choose from, each at around 8km and you will be aiming to run as many loops as you can in 6 hours. You'll be able to enter our race in one of three categories; Solo (just you and your running shoes), Pairs (hand over to a mate when you need a break!), or Team Entry (4 runners to spread the load). Whatever you choose, the atmosphere will inspire you and the music is sure to drive you to the finish.
But this is a Maverick event and, as you know, we don’t do things by halves. We’ve teamed up with Jimmy's Iced Coffee to bring you the Jimmy's Hill Challenge - what could be more entertaining than a hill sprint with a huge Slip 'n' Slide back down?!
As you kick off your running shoes, we kick off the evening with our amazing first act, Famous First Words… not heard about them? You’re going to want to take a look at this. Our next act, Norman Jay MBE, needs no introduction and with his smooth grooves you’re sure to be in the party mood. Finally, for our headline act, we're insanely excited to welcome The Cuban Brothers to our stage! They've played some huge festivals in their time, and we know you will just be in awe.
There will be plenty more to keep you entertained throughout the weekend including inspirational words from our guest speaker, inov-8 ambassador Nicky Spinks, an outdoor cinema, a climbing wall for kids and grown-ups, yoga classes, sneaker pimping station, sponsors and trade stands, a giant hay bale castle, a kids' fun loop and a mini assault course.
We really look forward to seeing you at the Maverick & Jimmy's Summit Festival.Get tickets
