Trail Running

We are so excited to announce the launch of our Trail running weekends to explore the beautiful Gower peninsula.

Starting this year, we will be launching our brand new Trail Running and Rambling Weekends.

Expect to follow the path of the wild Welsh mountain ponies and see the sheep grazing on the hills. The coastal path will not disappoint with its breathtaking scenery.

Our Guides

We are incredibly lucky to have some incredible Trail running and rambling guides available. We have guides to suit all abilities from the more experienced longer distance Trail runners to the just starting out beginners who want to appreciate the landscape.

Joe Allister – our most experienced trail runner and founder of Gower Trailblazers. Joe will be leading our fastest and longest routes. He is a qualified run leader (LiRF) and knows every Gower Trail.

Lara Joslin – daughter of the King’s Head, having been in the King’s Head since she was 3 and explored every possible bridle path on her horses theres not much of Gower she doesn’t know! Currently training for half marathons, she doesn’t claim to be the fastest but likes to plod on! Also a qualified run leader.

Amanda de la Hey – more well known as the lady runner, powered by plants! Born and bred on Gower, knows every nook and cranny! Currently training for her first 23 mile Gower trail (October!), also a qualified run leader.
