Maverick Adidas Terrex Original New Forest

We really cannot think of any better way to start 2020 than running the Maverick Adidas Terrex Original New Forest nestled in the heart of the ancient woodlands of this stunning National Park. For 2020 our New Forest event is the first of the New Year and your first opportunity to stick to those new years resolutions. Whether you’ve vouched to; try new things, get fitter, run further, run faster, explore the great outdoors… these three routes are the perfect way to kick those goals into action and set you up for a healthy and happy 2020.

All three New Forest routes start in the Holmsley inclosure, with the short route remaining inside the boundary of the inclosure for it’s length. The medium and long routes snake into and around the Brownhill and Wilverly inclosures, where out on the grassy plains you are bound to see some of the local wildlife. Amongst a mix of trees that are, young and old evergreen and deciduous, the trails will take you on a tour through the beating heart of the Forest. Bats tend to roost in the broadleaved trees and thick young conifers provide shelter for deer, so keep your eyes peeled.

With the trails being moderately smooth and generally covered with a gravel surface, the three New Forest routes are suitable for all level of Trail Runner. But beware, the trails can and do get wet and muddy, and don’t be fooled there are certainly some short, steep slopes hidden amongst the flora and fauna.

These trails will challenge you, but reward you. We look forward to seeing you in January and starting the new year the Maverick way. Whilst we can’t guarantee that it will be warm, we can promise a magical event with the crunching and crackling of frosted leaves underfoot.

We know this one will be first come, first served for places so don’t wait until you’ve set a New Year Resolution to sign up. We can’t wait to see you there, and you never know, there might even be the possibility of building a post race snowman.
