Bournemouth & Wareham, Dorset
Run Leaders for the Maverick Run Project are the people who make our social runs possible. They know their local area better than we do so they go out and find routes that they think you'll enjoy. Below is the information about the Run Leader for this particular social run.
Hello, I am Sophie and I’m based in Poole, Dorset. I’ve been running Maverick races and volunteering as a marshal at various races for them since 2018.
I started trail running a while back and find it’s the perfect alternative to my other love – riding bikes (mountain/road/gravel - you name it). I race ultra’s competitively and in the past couple of years I've leant more towards longer distance trail running. I find the longer the distance and the harder the course, the more I enjoy the process.
I run a lot with my rescue dog - Phoebe - in the Purbecks and you can find us over there most weekends. When I am not running or cycling, I am generally at work and co-own a product design consultancy in Poole, called Aetha Design.
Sophie organises a 10k trail run through the woods, down chines, along paths and on the beaches of Branksome and Penn Hill, in Dorset.
The route distances range from 10 to 17k and the pace is run at a social level so everyone can join in and support each other.
There are a few routes which leave at 6.30pm from Penn Hill carpark (opposite Penn Central) so please bring a head torch between November and April.
See the My Running Club app for more information on routes/times.
