The Maverick Adidas Terrex Original New Forest 2024
Saturday 20 January 2024 | Roundhill Campsite, New Forest
** DOG ENTRIES HAVE NOW SOLD OUT**
Nestled in the heart of the stunning New Forest National Park's ancient woodland, the Maverick Adidas Terrex Original New Forest trail running event is sure to be the best way to start your 2024 season
All three New Forest routes start from Roundhill Campsite in Brockenhurst. Amongst a mix of trees that are, young and old evergreen and deciduous, the trails will take you on a tour through the beating heart of the Forest. Bats tend to roost in the broadleaved trees and thick young conifers provide shelter for deer, so keep your eyes peeled.
With the trails being moderately smooth and generally covered with a gravel surface, the three New Forest routes are suitable for all levels of Trail Runner. But beware, the trails can and do get wet and muddy, and don’t be fooled there are certainly some short, steep slopes hidden amongst the flora and fauna. Please note, there is no outpost on the Short route.
These trails will challenge you, but reward you. We look forward to seeing you in January and starting the new year the Maverick way. Whilst we can’t guarantee that it will be warm, we can promise a magical event with the crunching and crackling of frosted leaves underfoot.
Fast, flat & untechnical - a great beginner course for new trail runners!

NEW FOREST TRAIL RUNNING - 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!
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.
There will be 1 outpost on the Short & Middle routes, at approximately 3.5km. There will be 2 outposts on the Long route (approx 3.5km & 12.5km). 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.
Although we do not have strict cut offs as such, we do appreciate if all runners (regardless of distance) are finished by 2pm. This equates to a finish time of 4hrs.
This helps to ease the pressure on our marshals, so that they are not stood outside for long periods of time.
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.
