Welcome to the Maverick USE Exposure Lights Dark Series. If you enjoy trail running in the daylight then you are in for a real treat running in the dark! It's an amazing experience; your senses are heightened, you immerse yourself deep in the surroundings, with your head torch on the trails streak past you at warp speed, you concentrate on making that perfect foot placement so as not to take a tumble.
For this night time trail running event, we return to the Surrey Hills - starting you from the magnificent Denbies Wine Estate. Situated on the North Downs in the town of Dorking near to junction 9 of the M25, it has glorious views across the rolling Surrey Hills and acres of countryside. The routes we have designed here are intended to test you. We don’t plot routes to make them easy – we want you to become a Maverick and challenge yourself. With three routes to choose from, there’s something for everyone here at Denbies. Whatever you decide, we’re sure you’ll have an epic night trail run out here with the Mavericks, and remember – The Darkness Awaits...

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.
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.
