Starting at Moor Park school on the Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire border, our new Shropshire event takes you out of the village of Richard's Castle, near Ludlow and onto some brand new trails for Maverick Race. All three routes weave through the Shropshire hills AONB, taking in a mix of rolling farmland, woodland trails and river valleys. Despite the mix of terrain and variety of landscape, you can be certain that the main characteristics of these three routes are; hills, hills and more hills.
All three routes will be alive with the sound of Skylarks, Redstarts and Buzzards and the sights of green golden valleys and dramatic moorlands. You will run along a mix well trodden waymarked trails (Hereford and Mortimer Trails) and smaller less beaten paths. You will weave up and over the remains of Richards Castle itself as part of the 700m of elevation gain (on the long route), which will certainly leave you breathless.
We are so excited to bring a brand new event for 2022 in an area that is so unspoilt and rich in a love for the great British outdoors. We can’t wait to explore a brand new AONB in the UK and share it with our Maverick trail Family, we just hope you can join us in July for the fun.
Long: 22 km

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 email@example.com 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.
In an effort to keep our trails clean and preserve the nature around us, we’re aiming to keep out outposts cup free. Please bring a cup or bottle to re-fill.Get a Maverick Speedcup
