Maverick Adidas Terrex Frontier Ox Drove
We head to Wiltshire Cranborne Chase AONB for the third event of our new Frontier series. Whilst the routes are aimed at all levels of runner, the emphasis is on taking you Mavericks to your first / fastest / funnest 50km.
The is a new area for a Maverick race in 2021, taking you on a whole new adventure. With its diverse landscape offering areas of rolling chalk grassland, ancient woodlands, chalky escarpments and river valleys, there are plenty of epic trails to keep a seasoned Maverick or first-time trail runner happy.
Whichever of our four routes you choose - 52k, 41k, 22k, 13k - you will be sure to experience undulating terrain which will challenge you whoever you are and whatever your prior experience. Whilst you may have to power hike up some of the hills, you will have more time to take in the surrounding scenery. We encourage you to stop and catch your breath as you look out across Cranborne Chase and the surrounding countryside, with views stretching over Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset.
Prizes for the winners of each distance, male and female.
