About this event

Dorset is the Home of Maverick Race and we welcome you back for 2017 to this fantastic location with open arms. Located at Purbeck Valley Farm, deep in the Isle of Purbeck with stunning views looking out across Corfe Castle and steeped in history dating back to the Ice Age. You can enjoy running through the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, along Nine Barrow Down taking in some of the most fantastic views with Poole Harbour to your left and the beautiful seaside town of Swanage to your right.

This route takes in Old Harry Rocks, wild garlic woodlands, the heathlands around Agglestone and the forest through the Rempstone Estate. And for the Marathon distance route you will get to tackle the dorset coastline, taking in the amazing scenery around Flowers Barrow and Tyneham.
If you’re only planning on doing one of the Maverick Original trail series then make it this one, it will leave you breathless… literally! We are pretty confident that this route is the finest in Dorset.

As with all Maverick events you can expect up to 3 on-course hydration and nutrition outposts provided by Skratch Labs. There will also be prizes for the winners of each distance, male and female.

  1. Did Dorset this weekend. Fantastic course, stunning views and really well organised. The Maverick team are all really friendly, professional and keep the events laid back. Great finish line atmosphere too which is something you don’t often get with these longer races! Surrey and Sussex where equally epic.

    Justin and Ben, top work! Keep it up! I’ll be back for more

    The Dorset course is EPIC, a flat and fast start through Rempstone, before leading out to some slightly more technical uphill to Agglestone Rock (top views!). Then a fast section out to old Harry’s rocks at about 8mi. Then the fun begins! The gentle uphill for 1mi takes you up onto the ominous ridge line you can see for the whole course, once up the trail tracks the side of the hill, really testing your foot work. You come down off this ridge to the final water stop before the biggest climb of the day, from Ulwell up to Goddlingston Hill. Gotta be 500ft vertical, and looks really imposing, so up you go! From here it should be all downhill to the finish, but the trail turns off the ridge before making you climb it again, then the final downhill to Rempstone! It’s a tough 15mi, but super varied, really fun and stunning!
