The 15K Maverick USE Exposure Dark Series Oxfordshire

Race Date: Saturday, 08/02/2020
Race Distance: 15 Km

15km in the pitch black of a obscenely muddy and undulating course near Henley, what could possible go wrong? Headlamps were compulsory (obviously) in this superbly organised event. Glow sticks, reflective markers, glow-in-the-dark spray paint and fantastic volunteers all kept you on course but the ever present treacherous conditions underfoot ( damn you exposed tree roots ) also kept you on your toes (literally). With storm Ciara only 12 hours away weather was still perfect although chilly and finishers were rewarded with a iced tea and beer combo. Almost all Maverick races are dog friendly so run with my pup hoping for added four legged traction, she was awarded with her own special dog-medal at the finish line. Despite taking a couple of tumbles, this is a highly recommended race for those looking for a slightly different trail experience.
