Organiser's Description

The Maverick Adidas Terrex Dorset Original event is set in the home of Maverick Race. We’re so proud to call this beautiful part of the UK our home and urge you all - beginners, to experienced trail runners alike- to join us in Dorset for this event.

With three routes around our own personal favourite trails there is a suitable challenge for everyone to give trail running a go and see what Maverick race is all about. We promise you all that no matter which route you choose you will be treated to some of the best scenery and coastlines the UK has to offer.

We head towards the rugged Jurassic coastline, where seabirds soar, and ancient caves litter the coastline. Steeped in Heritage and with more elevation than previous years, there is no possible way that the Maverick Adidas Terrex Dorset Original event will disappoint.

We look forward to welcoming you to the trails, the home of Maverick race and the start line in August.

Please Note - This is a postponed event that was due to happen on May 30th 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of throwing away the old medals and ordering new ones, we have decided to reduce our carbon footprint and use the original medals dated ‘May 30th 2020’. We look forward to seeing you on the start line fit and healthy when we can enjoy the outdoors once more.
