The Gower Ultra 50 challenge is to complete a 50 mile circumnavigation of the stunning Gower peninsula on foot. It is suitable for both runners and fast walkers. The Gower Ultra Bach (Little) is a new race for 2018 following 34 miles of Coast line from Llhanrhidian to the Mumbles.

The Ultra 50 route starts on the dramatic cliffs overlooking Limeslade Bay, before dropping down to the Mumbles Pier and following the fast flat coastal path for approximately 2 miles around Swansea Bay. From here the route briefly leaves the coastal path and heads inland, passing through Clyne Woods, before dropping down onto an old railway line cycle track which takes you to the north cost of the Gower. When it reaches Gowerton you will regain the Coastal Path and follow the Loughor Estuary on a flatter faster section to Llhanrhidian.

It is here the Gower Ultra 50 and Gower Ultra Bach joins together. It is at Llandimore where the route starts to become challenging as faster trail sections are replaced with rolling cliff tops, and beach side coves. From Rhossli and the breath-taking worms head, the path heads east along the southern coast of the Gower initially crossing farmland along cliff tops, until it reaches Port Eynon.  You will then cross a string of stunning beaches and bays including Port Eynon, Oxwich, Three Cliffs, Caswell and Langland until reaching Rams Tor and completing your adventure.

"...the marshalls and everyone at Run, Walk, Crawl did an amazing job in their first Gower 50, their unflinching support all day was really appreciated, their well stocked checkpoints would put many larger organisations to shame, a truly well run event, and the after run curry was to die for!!"  Allan

"This was a brilliant event. The beach running was superb, the coast path views stunning. The organising team made everyone feel really welcome. This should become a classic ultra challenge."  Richie
