The Maverick races are a series of tough trail races held across different counties throughout the year, they are "human" races which allow canicross entries.
NATB Claire, along with dog Jack decided to use the Surrey race as a training run for their upcoming marathon.
There are 3 distance options, due to the heat on the day they dropped to the middle distance of 16.5km.
The race started at the National Trusts Polesden Lacey House near Dorking. It was certainly warming up by the time the race started, hydration packs were a must and frequent stops were required to cool Jack down.
The course was very dry and the hills were immense, it felt like way more "ups" than "downs".
Jack ran really well, taking it easy due to the heat, we finished in a good time (considering the water stops) of 1.35, coming 1st Canicrosser and 6th female over all.
Congratulations, great effort :)
The NATBs will be keeping you up to date on their members, their dogs and events for the 2015/2016 Season. Hope you enjoy!
