Gwernyfed High School: Three Cocks, Powys, United Kingdom
Brand new for 2020 we venture to South Wales for the Maverick Adidas Terrex X-Ultra Black Mountains event. This edition to the race calendar is long overdue, with the steep climbs, expansive ridgeways, technical descents and breathtaking views being everything us Mavericks look for in trails.
The Black Mountains are known for their mystery, moodiness and Magic. We bring to you 4 brand new routes that cut through these mythical mountains, so you can create your own set of Maverick magical moments. The trails vary from wide forest clearings to rocky paths and from well trodden by ways to largely unexplored tracks.
In true Maverick form we take you up the highest peak of the mountains - Waun Fach - sitting at over 800m, before descending down to the Grwynw Fawr reservoir and the lushous Welsh valleys that interlock below. The trails will be cloaked in the greenest of grass and sprinkled with sheep, transporting you to a place more a kin to something out of middle earth and the tales of Tolkien.
We can’t wait to welcome you to South Wales, somewhere we have wanted to take our Maverick trail running family for a long time. We know this will sell quickly, so don’t hang around. #theoutdoorsawaits
