Sika Trail Bere Road, Coldharbour, Wareham, BH20 7PE
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 stunning Sika Trail in Wareham Forest. A perfect location for our pre-Xmas Dark event, the route takes in Forest, heath and some open pastures. The Sika Trail is a stone's throw away from Poole but you will feel a million miles away from civilisation. This area is famous for its birdlife and whilst running the trails around Wareham Forest 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...Register now
