Princes Risborough School: Merton Road,, Princes Risborough, United Kingdom
We head to Buckinghamshire for the our second year this event sold out in record time in 2019 so please make sure you book early to avoid disappointment. Nestled in the heart of England this route really delivers on all levels, you will find yourself winding through ancient woodland, steeped in history with incredible views over the surrounding Chiltern hills AONB.
Whist running you will be greeted with the sound of Red Kites soaring high above. You will find yourselves running on various famous routes such as the Icknield Way, which is a one of the oldest roads in Britain, it consist of Prehistoric pathways, already old when the Romans set foot upon it. Its survives now as splendid green lanes.
The route starts off by climbing up to Whiteleaf hill, where you will see the famous white leaf chalk cross, and again stunning views of the surrounding area. A section of the long route takes you to a viewpoint where you can see the famous 16th Century country home of the prime minister “Chequers.
With trains frequently leaving London and arriving into Princes Risborough in less than an hour the Maverick Buckinghamshire event is certainly worthy of a Saturday morning adventure. Also with the event falling just 5 weeks before many of Europe's big spring Marathons it is a great opportunity to get in racing practice and get in those last few big training runs.
Also please take the opportunity to test some of the amazing gear from Adidas TERREX
So we look forward to welcoming you back or welcoming you for the first time to Buckinghamshire. You won’t want to miss out on this one.
