The Maverick Adidas Terrex X Series Chilterns 2024
Saturday 20 July 2024 | Princes Risborough School
We head to the Chiltern Hills for the first of our X Series events. Whilst the routes are aimed at all level of runners the emphasis is on taking you Mavericks to your first / fastest / funnest 50km.
Nestled in the heart of England, this route through the Chilterns delivers on all levels. You'll find yourself winding through ancient woodlands, steeped in history, with your efforts being rewarded by incredible views over the surrounding Chiltern Hills AONB. You'll be running on various famous routes such as the Icknield Way which is one of the oldest roads in Britain, consisting of Prehistoric pathways that date back to before Roman times. There’s also an awesome section along the Grand Union Canal which weaves its way into Wendover before you make the climb up Pulpit Hill and White Leaf Cross. Please note, there is no outpost on the Short route.
With trains frequently leaving London and arriving into Princes Risborough in less than 1 hour, the Maverick X-Series Chilterns event is certainly worthy of a Saturday morning adventure.
