14th April 2018


Returning for 2018 and welcoming back the tremendous Quantock Hills, this is a seriously good route and back as the toughest Original series event we do! Not only are the views captivating - the trails are brutal! The routes here are set to test your resolve and determination.

With views of the Bristol Channel, Wales, Blackdown Hills, Exmoor and the Somerset Levels you should be as inspired as one of our greatest poets, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, once was.

Team Maverick have searched the south for the finest and toughest routes.  We want you to leave our event with, not only, an enormous sense of achievement but also with the beauty of the English countryside etched in to your minds. We have continued our theme of bringing you another route in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We hope you will be as taken aback as we were after running this route, with a mosaic of heathland hill tops and valley woodlands. Take in fantastic views across the hills, look out for red deer on the adjacent hill tops and the ancient oak pollards in Willoughby Cleeve. This route really has everything, from open heathland, to technical wooded single track and of course… HILLS! We look forward to welcoming you back to the finish line as true Mavericks after this one.  The outdoors awaits...

We do have accommodation available on site in the form of small cabins. Each cabin sleeps 5 people in bunk beds and costs £60.00 for the whole cabin, so well worth it if there is a small group. Please bring a sleeping bag and pillow. There are shower blocks, toilets and tea making amenities. If you would like any more info please drop us an email. A cabin booking can be made whilst purchasing your race entry as an additional purchase.

Sorry, unfortunately this is not a dog friendly event.
