Route description

All 4 races will take in the best the region has to offer. The coastal Gower 10K, half, marathon and ultra courses are set against an awe-inspiring natural backdrop of cliff tops, downland, woodland, sand dunes and world famous beaches. It will be a run to remember.

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.

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!

There will be a baggage area for those that have come without a car.

Races do not have exact start times, but will start shortly after the race briefing ends. The briefing and start windows are as follows: Ultra - 8.00 to 8.30am, Marathon - 8.30 - 9.00am, Half Marathon - 10.00 - 10.30am, and the 10k - 11.00 to 11.30am. We recommend arriving at least half an hour before your race briefing starts to allow time to park and register. Registration closes 15 minutes before your briefing and start window.
FAQ
What is the cut-off time for the Endurancelife Coastal Trail Series – Gower?
There are cut-off times for the Marathon and Ultra races only. All Ultra and Marathon participants must reach CP3 (at 19.4 miles) by 14:00, and ultra runners must reach the end of the Marathon route (at 26.4 miles) by 15:00. It is worth being aware of cut-off times, but it is rare that participants miss them.

All races except the 10k have mandatory kit requirements in order to ensure the safety of all runners. Your kit will be checked at some point during the event. Participants without mandatory kit will be disqualified. Mandatory kit includes a mobile phone, waterproof, hydration system, and snacks. Longer races also require runners to carry cash, headwear, a headtorch, and a whistle. For a full list see here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1n8QPunC-gfQY-fZCw4eTZDtkhcoBtbuYCNLavfzQN4I/edit
