DOG ENTRIES ARE NOW SOLD OUT
We are pleased to announce another new event for Maverick Race, this time venturing further north to Lincolnshire and the stunning grounds of Grimsthorpe Castle. And the best bit, this is a FREE to enter race. Why? Because everyone needs more opportunities to get outdoors and experience trail running done the Maverick way. Tell your friends, family, neighbours, colleagues, and training partners to come and run a Maverick Race event completely free. With demo kit being provided by Adidas TERREX they won't even need their own pair of trainers!
Grimsthorpe Park was on the southern edge of the great Lincolnshire Forest. Oak trees that had been recorded in the Doomsday Book of 1086 were growing in the park when drawings of the park were made in the early 18th century. Some of these ancient trees were still growing there in the 20th century. Oaks were felled during the Tudor period for shipbuilding and again during Cromwell’s ten year Commonwealth.
The three routes on the Original Lincolnshire are all mostly set on the grounds of the park, with the Long route venturing out into some of the quaint villages on the outskirts of the castle. The trails are flat and fast and will keep you entertained while you soak up the diverse wildlife the park has to offer, from its herd of friendly fallow deer, hares boxing in the fields, and majestic swans on the lake.
This race is perfect for all levels of trail running and we know it would be ideal for any children looking to take the leap into trail running. The routes are exceptionally safe and the trails are hard-packed and wide, which is also great for runners who would like to bring their four-legged friends. There will be 2 outposts on the route to offer you drinks, Precision Fuel and Hydration products, Barebells bars and delicious fruit.
As this is a free event, we won't be giving runners a medal when they cross the finish line. However, if you want to get your race memento to add to your collection you can add it to your entry during checkout.
We look forward to seeing you on the trails in Lincolnshire.

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.
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
