Set in the home of Maverick Race, the X Series Jurassic Coast race has four trail routes that will take you on an invigorating adventure around the Isle of Purbeck and along part of the 95-mile stretch of the famous Jurassic Coast.
All routes start just outside the picturesque village of Corfe Castle, where you’ll then run steadily across marshland gradually making your way towards the coast. Our 50km route will take your right down to the tip of the Purbecks at St. Aldhelm’s Head before heading on a 20km stretch along the coastal path. You’ll be treated to nothing but unparalleled views of the English Channel to your left and the distinctive white chalky cliffs up ahead.
We are so excited to welcome you to where Maverick Race all started and the trails that inspired us to get outdoors and start exploring. We can’t wait to share our favourite paths, hills and views with you, knowing you’ll be stunned and challenged in equal measure. Whether you are brand new to trail running or have run many times before with four distances to choose from there is something for all levels. Please note, there is no outpost on the Short route.
There aren’t views in the UK quite like the Jurassic coast and no-one does trail running events quite like us, so join us in October, you won’t want to miss out.

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.
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
