2023 RUN SCHEDULE
Back again for a 4th year running, running to Blue Pool Bay from Love Trails Festival is the quintessential run to wild swim experience. A natural tidal pool cut into the rocks, Blue Pool Bay is a bit of a Gower Peninsula classic!
The run is fully marked (follow the Run to Wild Swim Love Trails signs), but not supported, either with marshals or aid stations. So you’ll need to be totally self-sufficient in terms of what you bring; having sufficient water & nutrition.
This is a ‘Just Show Up’ run, include in the price of your ticket, so grab your trail running shoes and run it at any time over the weekend! Just don’t forget to bring your swim kit and a microfiber towel.
Can’t be bothered to run back? Take the Love Trails Adventure Bus back to the festival site!
Think you’ve got what it takes to become a Beer Mile Relay World Champion? Then get a team together for this crazy, booze-fuelled 400-metre relay race (non-alcoholic beer is available, but you still have to deal with the bubbles!).
Compete against hundreds of worthy opponents in the Beer Mile Relay World Championships, taking place on Saturday afternoon at Love Trails 2023. Teams of four go head-to-head to see who can down a beer the quickest and complete a mile.
One person from each team drinks a can of beer, and then runs 400m, then the next person goes, in a relay format. The first team to complete the mile wins. Sounds easy, right? It’s really not.
Entry is included in your ticket price, first come first served - limited availability. Sign up at the Love Trails Info Point in the festival village when you get to Love Trails Festival.
