Gower was the first place in Britain to be designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (AONB). The unique peninsula is a protected haven for some of the richest and most varied wildlife habitats in the UK. The coastal trails here are set against an awe-inspiring natural backdrop of cliff tops, downland, woodland, sand dunes and world famous beaches. This trail running paradise is very accessible from most parts of the UK.

  • Did the Marathon in 2018

    Nothing out of the ordinary for a coastal trail event. Course was more or less as expected. I keep going back-and-forth on whether I would've preferred to run in the other direction. The majority of the muddiest spots were towards the end when legs were quite wobbly already. Saw a few people slip and fall. Advice to future runners - shoes w/ excellent traction.
  • Did the Ultra Marathon in 2018

    All was great , location , organisation, route. Only problem we had was my super supporter wife couldn't get to all the recommended view points, roads inaccessible, no parking etc.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2017

    Stunning views of Gower peninsula, bit wet and wild but worth it!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2017

    Stunning course around the Gower peninsula, albeit pretty tough on a long windy stretch of beach. There's a (mediocre) pub with a great view over the course to reward you at the end!
  • Did the Marathon in 2017

    This is an epic course and a really well run series. Definitely worth doing!
