The Maverick Exposure Lights Dark Oxfordshire 2024
Saturday 30 November 2024 | Stonor Park
Welcome to the Maverick Exposure Lights Dark Series Oxfordshire. 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, and you concentrate on making that perfect foot placement so as not to take a tumble.
Starting and finishing in Stonor Park, which is split by the River Thames and nestled in the Chiltern Hills, this location can only be described as quintessential middle England. We love the Oxfordshire Original Series event, so it was only fitting that we experience this area at night. The 3 routes are all set in the estate which is home to fallow deer and wallabies... yep, we have actually seen a wallaby there! All the routes are relatively challenging and with 3 to choose from, there is something for everyone. Please note, there is no outpost on the Short route.
Make sure you end the season strong and put this Dark Series event in your calendar as it's going to be a corker!....... And remember - The Darkness Awaits...
Unfortunately you will not be able to take part with your dog during our Dark Series events.
Long: 15 km
Middle: 11 km

HOW IT WORKS
As a guide you should always:
• Follow the on course signage
• Listen to on course marshals
• Take care when crossing roads
• Be considerate to others
• Please close all gates, DO NOT litter!
There will be no outpost on the short route. There will be 1 outposts on the Middle route (approx 6km) and 2 outposts on the Long route (approx 6km & 10km). The outposts are designed to act as a top up for what you are already carrying. There will be a range of sweet & savoury snacks (fruit, cake, crisps) as well as Precision Hydration fuel & electrolyte.
In our quest to make this season plastic-free, we ask that you run with a reusable cup or bottle. Hydrapak Speed Cups are available to purchase at each event and online.
If for any reason you wish to transfer out from an event we are happy to do this, but once only. You may transfer to any event listed on our website or even change to a higher value event and pay the difference. We cannot action any transfers or refunds for an event that has sold out.
The last day to transfer out of an event is the Monday before event day (5 days before the event), please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the event you would like to move to. We are not able to move you out of an event if you contact us after this day
Choose your route carefully. The distance and elevation gain should give you some indication as to how easy/hard each route is, as well as showing you where the tougher climbs are.
