Overview

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.

*Those half marathon runners who miss their registration slot will only be able to register after the 10K registration, and will then be given a short briefing before starting the event at approximately 1100. Those who do this will not be eligible for winners' prizes or medals, irrespective of their result.

Please click here to read in more detail about how the Starts of each event may be conducted on the day (subject to capacity), and here to read more about course closure and cut-off times.

Your participant number will be on display at registration on event day. Paper running numbers, electronic timing chips, and all other items will be issued at Registration; nothing will be sent to you through the post prior to the event.

Parking

 On-site parking is available free of charge for National Trust members. Parking charges for non Trust members apply: £2 for 2 hours (this is suitable for 10K runners) / £4 all day. Please bring the correct change with you as the car park is machine operated.

Please follow signage and Marshals' instructions upon arrival. Due to the sensitive locations used for the CTS events, parking may be located a short walk from the event base. Additionally, If we need to use our contingency parking locations these will typically work on a park and ride basis. Your patience when such situations occur is very much appreciated. Endurancelife strongly advocate car sharing and our Facebook site is a good medium for this.

Facilities

Shop: Energy bars, gels, bags, bottles, and other trail running essentials.

Mandatory Kit

Endurancelife events involve being out in remote areas for extended periods. Your safety is your responsibility and the correct equipment is vital for your well being.

We check kit either before, during or after crossing the finish line. Those found without the minimum mandatory kit will be disqualified; no exceptions given.

In rare circumstances certain kit may be deemed unnecessary; this will be communicated during the event briefing on event day. However, please NB this is highly unlikely.

Although not mandatory, basic (Half Marathon) kit is highly recommended for 10K runners.

We recommend trail running shoes for all categories.
