Our ethos at Maverick Race is to ensure we show all our runners the best of the UK through trail running. The Maverick Adidas Terrex Original East Sussex is absolutely no exception as we all three routes will take you on an adventure through this beautiful part of our little island.
All three routes take in the famous South Downs Way, which inevitably means; rolling hills and undulating trails. The routes take in the Ditchling Beacon which is the third-highest point on the South Downs National park meaning you will be treated to stunning views all the way to London in the north and the coast to your south.
The trails on all three routes consist of; woodland walkways, chalky tracks, and farmland paths. All three routes are suitable for all levels of trail runner and the Maverick Adidas Terrex Original East Sussex is a super event for people looking to transition from road running into trail running. Please note, there is no outpost on the Short route.
Our East Sussex event is less than a 1-hour drive or train journey from the City of London, so there is little excuse not to come and explore this brand new venue and Trail running event.

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
