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.
I’m a trail runner from Bristol that started from nothing being an ex-footballer with a history of 8 knee build operations to my name. Now I easily take on 50-mile races in my stride.
I found running after my dad died which pushed me to focus on my mental and physical help which help me to survive the grief I was experiencing.
Running for me is about the community which I found within Maverick and with the running community. This saved me and I can’t thank the friends and family I have made during the time I have been running. So Maverick Run Project means to me that we stand for equality, empowerment and community within running.
No matter who we are, we are a group of people who may have never met each other before who connect over our love of getting out and testing ourselves through trail running with the support of the crew behind you.
The most important thing for me is that we start together and end together - no one is ever left behind. For me, the three key factors for me are Empowerment -equality - community No Egos. No show-offs. Just good times and good vibes
We will be running Between 10/12km at a very social pace around Bristol’s Ashton court and Leigh Woods.
Both Ashotn Court and Leigh woods are popular for mountain bikers, trail runners and walkers. They are located on the outskirts of Bristol, just a stone's throw away from the Clifton suspension bridge. There are beautiful, undulating trail paths weaving through the ancient broadleaf forest and limestone grassland along the Avon Gorge, with spectacular views.
The woods are accessed via the medium-sized car park- the ideal place for starting off on a walk or a run. There are also a number of picnic tables throughout the woodland for rest breaks.
We will take an adventure into the woods, taking in magical spots like Paradise Bottom. There are some spectacular hills - such as Nightingale Valley, as well as some easy miles along the towpath taking in the views of Clifton suspension bridge.
