This was my first time running a Maverick Series race and it certainly won't be the last. I thoroughly enjoyed it from the minute I arrived at the race to the minute I left.

I ran the "Long" route which was 22km in the Quantock Hills in Somerset which was certainly not for the feint hearted with something in the region of 2700ft of climbing but it was all worth it for the amazing scnery.

The organisation pre and post race was excellent. The medal is impressive and includes a bottle opener which is handy as you get an ice cold bottle of Maverick Ale along with the medal (and an ice coffee too!).

The Maverick Series is sponsored by Inov-8 and they were onsite with demo shoes that you could use for the race if you like as well as lots of other nice kit for sale.

I highly recommend the Maverick Series to anyone who enjoys trail running and doesn't mind the odd hill too. I will certainly be back to do more Maverick events when the schedule allows.
