Maverick Dark Series - Denbies Wine Estate, Surrey

Trail running with three distance options in beautiful rolling Surrey Hills


Maverick trail Dark Series is back!! We've run lots of Maverick events and they are always brilliantly organised and incredibly friendly. There are three distance options and the cut off time is very generous so you can tackle the course however you want.

Enter here:

The race will be at NIGHT so head torches are mandatory. Parking is free if you drive, otherwise Dorking Station isn't too far away. I'll be on the train down from London Bridge that day. The race itself sets off at 5pm, doors open at 3pm.

Might be a good bit of practice for XC season.

When you sign up be sure to put GoodGym Race Team in the 'team' box so we can keep track of each other. Feel free to ask me any questions about racing/this race/anything running related at

See you there!

Some description from Maverick:

"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 in 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 you from the magnificent Denbies Wine Estate. Situated on the North Downs in the town of Dorking near to junction 9 of the M25, it has glorious views across the rolling Surrey Hills and acres of countryside. The routes we have designed here 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 routes to choose from, there’s something for everyone here at Denbies. Whatever you decide, we’re sure you’ll have an epic night trail run out here with the Mavericks, and remember – The Darkness Awaits..."
