Gower Ultra - Swansea - Sunday 7 October 2018

Martin Loveless reports, I traveled to Swansea this weekend for the Gower Ultra which has to be one of the most scenic runs I've ever done. Choice if 2 runs, the 50 starts and finishes at Mumbles cricket club and heads inland to the north coast before following the coastline back to the club or the 34mile option which gives you a coach trip to the north coast before the run back to Mumbles 

On the basis that I wanted to run the coastal portion in the daylight, I went for the 'short' option and enjoyed a great run along sandy beaches and coastal paths (though the sand dune climbs weren't so pleasant) and somehow managed a top ten finish. 

The website for the event and some very similar ultras they organise in Wales is here
