2021 hasn't started the way we originally planned which has meant finding space at the end of the year for our January and February events. As such the Dark West Sussex event will now be held on Saturday 27th November - the same day as the Original West Sussex event -. This means there is the unique opportunity to run not one, but TWO Maverick Race events on a single day, in a single location! We’ve set up a 20% discount for those of you who want to run the double (Original in the morning, Dark in the afternoon). So what are you waiting for? 2 Medals, 1 day… we can’t see any reasons not too.
Our Maverick Exposure Lights West Sussex is set to be a blast in 2021. The South Downs remains one of our most popular areas for events amongst our Maverick Runners so, for 2021, we want to take you on a journey of adventure in the Dark. With the event village set in the Amberley Museum, next door to the Amberley Railway station, runners can be collecting their race numbers in less than 120 minutes after departing from London. However, links to London certainly aren’t West Sussex’s only draw.
All three routes weave through the rolling hills, tranquil valleys and bustling hamlets of the quintessentially English South Downs, as well as spending time on the iconic South Downs Way.
Whether you are a seasoned Trail Runner or a complete novice, the West Sussex Dark series event is suitable yet challenging for all levels of experience. The trails vary from fire trails, forest paths and farm tracks, with hills and technical sections thrown in for good measure.
With the West Sussex Dark short route being our hilliest short distance night time trail running event (sitting at over 300m of ascent in just over 8km) and the middle and long routes being some of our toughest Dark routes, you can guarantee that signing up to run with us in West Sussex is sure to earn you some serious Kudos.

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.
