I’m so excited to announce that I’m an ambassador for Love Trails Festival this year and be road-tripping to the Gower Peninsula, South Wales in July for the second round of the UK’s first running and music festival!

Held for the first time last year, hundreds of adventurers gathered on the Dorset coast for guided trail runs, exhilarating beer races, chilled yoga sessions, live music and dancing, and talks and workshops with inspiring speakers and athletes.

In it’s second year the festival is moving to Welsh soil and the beautiful Gower Peninsula for a long weekend of sunshine and smiles between 13-15th July and just look at the line-up!

I’m most looking forward to the sunset party run, listening to talks from my gals Maggie and Charlie, getting inspired with some late night adventure movies and learning all about racing the OMMs and getting a good eye for running photography.

How do I even choose from all the incredible activities?

As an ambassador I’ll be using my energy to spread the word about this inspirational three day event that combines running, music and adventure, giving guests a weekend like no other. Just check out the glowing feedback from last years festival-goers –

“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 Drech

“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

“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

“The Love Trails weekend was the highlight of my year.” – Daniel Varga

Love Trails Festival. Where running meets music and adventure. See you there?
