Course Details

Brand new for 2023, we bring you the Gower Three Peaks adventure marathon as part of the Gower festival!

Athletes will venture over the three highest peaks on Gower providing athletes with some of the most spectacular views in the UK.

Rhossili Downs, is more famously known for the tidal island 'The Worms Head' at the tip of the Gower Peninsula.

Llanmadoc Hill, the second peak you reach has 186m of elevation but the views on offer are second to none!

Cefn Bryn is the second-highest of the peaks standing at 188m. Its 5-mile-long ridge is often referred to locally as the 'backbone of Gower' as it protrudes from surrounding limestone.

It will be a real test of athlete endurance. A great occasion to meet your personal goals, push yourself to the test and a brilliant opportunity for fundraising. Celebrate your moment of glory with our famous red carpet.

There are public toilets at the Worms Head.
