About Love Trails Festival

The UK's first running and music festival is back for a third year! Love Trails Festival is a three day running, music, adventure and wellbeing festival, located in the stunning Gower Peninsular in South Wales. 

Uniquely, Love Trails Festival is a non-competitive running event, which means no races or medals, and the programme focuses on music and wellbeing just as much as trail running and adventure. 

Epic guided trail running adventures, hosted by the UK's leading running crews and communities, start and finish at the festival site every day. Exploring stunning beaches, coastal paths, dunes, forests, tidal islands, castles and heathland. 

By day, join a guided trail running adventure, sit in on an inspiration talk, a workshop, or just chill in one of our wood fired hot tubs. The Gower in Wales is the ultimate adventure playground, so get set for 'Run to Surf', 'Run to Wild Swim' or 'Run to Coasteering' among other adrenalin spiking activities. By night, settle by the campfire stage or let go to the sound of music at the main stage as the sun sets and stars come out.

5 STAR RATING ON FACEBOOK

My face hurts from smiling and laughing constantly all weekend
— Alexandra Wolley
Love Trails epitomised everything I love about adventure: exploring wild landscapes, pushing my physical limits, surrounded by nature, sleeping under the stars, campfires, great food, great ale and meeting lots of inspiring people. 10/10
— Chris Millar
Lovetrails combines the best of trail running, with the best of a festival, with the best of the British countryside. I came out a better runner, and with new friends which is as much as anyone could ask for in a weekend. See you in 2018!
— David Altabev
Thanks again for a brilliant weekend, it was well and truly awesome.
— Tomás O'Hanlon
The Love Trails weekender was a breath of fresh air, literally! I enjoyed so much escaping away to the countryside for a couple of nights with a great bunch of like minded people. Cosying up around the campfire at night to listen to inspiring talks from a variety of people about how they fit adventure into their lives was the perfect end to an exhausting but exhilarating day out on the trails. The whole weekend left me wanting more of the same - I’m already looking forward to next year.
— Heather Campbell
Total 5 star event. For anyone who has a love of trails and good beats music, from Reggae to Drum & Bass with everything else sandwiched in between. We had great fun delivering courses and running with a great likeminded folk in Purbeck, Dorset all weekend. Thoroughly recommend this festival, its AWESOME
— Charles Sproson
How long till next year!? I need to go again!

— Andreas Pickel
Amazing Festival! Great people, great runs, great location, amazing times! Looking forward to LoveTrails2018
— Carl Casagrande
Love Trails was an awesome weekend all round: great people, loads of runs to choose from, brilliant talks round a campfire and a stunning location. The workshops were amazing and both the ones I attended (Navigation Skills and How to Run Your First Ultra) were both well worth the money and will make a real tangible difference to my running. Can’t thank you enough and looking forward to next year already!
— Alice Marathon
The Love Trails weekend was the highlight of my year.
— Daniel Varga
My very first experience of trail running and I had the best time! There was something for all abilities. Would definitely come back next year.. Great music, great vibes, food and drink. But even better were the people. Excited to see this festival grow bigger and better in years to come! And glad to have been a part of it’s childhood. Thanks Love Trails and hope to see you soon!!
— Phillipa Toppin
Pure class. Good company, music and pub-crawl-half-marathons along the Jurassic Coast...good combo in anyone’s book! See you next year lovetrails!
— Huw Jack Brassington
One of the best weekends of the year! It was a blast to spend it with fellow runners, explore some beautiful trails, inspire each other and party. Phenomenal location, great organisation and fantastic vibes - that’s what the Love Trails Festival was all about. See you next year!
— Greg Drach
The Love Trails Festival was an incredible experience. George and Theo did a brilliant job organising the event, meaning that all we had to worry about was rocking up! The runs were challenging and rewarding, the company was welcoming and inspiring - can’t wait for next year.
