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.
Hi I'm Reka from Hungary. I love trail running and cycling.
Running is all about freedom and a happy place for me, making connections with people.
I did my first road marathon in Verona, 2014, but after doing a trail race in Snowdonia, I fall in love with trail running and haven't looked back since.
I set up a new and bigger running challenge every year for myself somewhere I had never been.
My favourite race ever was Lavaredo Ultra Trail 87km in the Dolomites in 2019. It was amazing, surrounded by mountains and streams everywhere.
Along my journey, I explored forests and mountains, met some amazing people who inspired me and helped me to improve and grow.
Come and join me in South London for some happy trails!
Reka organises a 10km / 6-mile route in the Coulsdon area of Surrey that is run at a social pace to suit the group.
Farthing Downs and Happy Valley is a nice trail located near Croydon that features beautiful wildflowers and is rated as moderate.
The run has several climbs and descents throughout including a couple of quite steep sections. The route follows wide paths throughout, including one path across the centre of crop fields. There are beautiful wildflowers throughout this nature trail. There are no stiles or gates on the route; just one flight of steps (which runs alongside a steep path). The chalk path surfaces can get very muddy and slippery, trail shoes are a must.
