Gower was the first place in Britain to be designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (AONB). The unique peninsula is a protected haven for some of the richest and most varied wildlife habitats in the UK, making it a pretty unique place for your next challenge. The coastal Gower 10K, half, marathon and ultra courses are set against an awe-inspiring natural backdrop of cliff tops, downland, woodland, sand dunes and world-famous beaches. This is a trail running paradise!

How you can help young people
- £30 could pay for an hour of care from a Teenage Cancer Trust nurse, who will understand the challenges of dealing with cancer as a young person and specialise in the best treatment for the cancers that affect this age group.
- £50 could buy a round of pizzas for a young person and their friends, which might just be the first thing that tempts a young person out of bed after a gruelling round of chemo.
- £100 could pay for 5 hours of time from one of our Multi-Disciplinary Team Co-ordinators, so they can build links with NHS staff, find our about every young cancer patient and arrange the right support.
- £200 could pay for one of our Youth Support Co-ordinators to give a group of young people a night out at the cinema or bowling – a world away from treatments and appointments.
- £500 could pay for a young person to make a film to express their feelings and help family and friends understand what they’re going through.
