It’s happened again - Maverick race heads north for a new and fantastic adventure in one of the most iconic locations in the UK.
We felt the time was right to take you Mavericks on a journey to the stunning Lake District, with its rugged fells, stunning glacial ribbon lakes, market towns and historic literary associations.
The new route starts in Grasmere and takes you on a rugged climb towards the impressive Stickle tarn, which is set in a wide bowl and overlooked by Pavey Ark and Harrison Stickle, these peaks once formed part of the rim of a wide volcano.
After this you head down towards an impressive 40ft waterfall fed by Dungeon Ghyll, this deep ravine was talked about by Wordsworth. Continuing on your epic trail run you head back down the Cumbria way towards Greater Langdale where you follow the river and make your way towards Loughrigg Tarn. These trails are so incredibly stunning you will loose yourself in the ancient woodlands.
In true Maverick fashion the adventure isn’t over there is one final sting in the tail with a mighty climb to the top of Rydal Head, and the Fairfield Horseshoe. Soak up the incredible views from this famous summit and bask in the glory of your efforts, from here it’s a technical descent back to the venue in Grassmere where Friends, family and other Mavericks await your arrival. We look forward to seeing you tow the line on this incredible route.
