About This Activity

What is the Marathon de Gwyr?

The Marathon de Gwyr (MdG) is the Darth Costal Runners’ summer challenge.


The MdG consists of 3 consecutive days of fell-running across the stunning Gower peninsula, covering a total distance of 55 miles. Unlike the Darth Mannion Beach & Swamp Run Challenge (
DMBSRC) there are no sea-dips or river runs, just beautiful landscapes and stunning coastline. 

 

Event details and schedule

MdG III will take place from 15th-17th June and will consist of 4 stages: 

Stage 1: 15th June P.M. – 19 miles

Stage 2: 16th June A.M. – 10 miles

Stage 3: 16th June P.M. – 8 miles

Stage 4: 17th June A.M. – 17 miles 

Each route finishes on a beach giving runners the option to cool off in the sea (after Stage 4 the ‘cool off’ will be accompanied by cold beers!) Participants are encouraged to run the full distance; however you can take part on the final day.

 

Internationally recognised Darth Mannion Peloton System

Similar to The DMBSRC, the MdG is an inclusive challenge and not a race. It will utilise a peloton system and there will be no static marshals. As such runners will be expected to run together, and not faster (or slower) than their designated peloton. Multiple pelotons will be utilised at the half way point of each stage to cater for different abilities.

 

Accommodation and Clothing

Campsite accommodation will be organised for all runners. A two-course meal will be provided each evening at the campsite pub. Warm breakfasts and lunches will also be provided. Participants will be expected to bring their own camping equipment, as well as sufficient warm clothing. Equipment will be transported by MdG vehicles.

 

Cost

The full cost is £195 and includes the following: All meals [2 x breakfasts, 2 x evening meals, 1 x lunch, 1 x BBQ and 1 x hog roast meal at the BBQ party]; energy drinks, energy bars & fruit; insurance; transport; safety car hire; campsite costs and MdG ‘Survivors’ T-Shirt.

If you register before 1st April 2017, you will qualify for a special £20 early bird discount.
