Organiser's Description

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 into 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.

We return to the Surrey Hills, starting from the magnificent Denbies Wine Estate on the North Downs, with glorious views across the rolling Hills and acres of countryside. The routes 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 3 to choose from - 6k, 11k, 22k - there’s something for everyone, and we’re sure you’ll have an epic night trail run out here with the Mavericks. And remember – The Darkness Awaits...
