Description

Showcasing the Gower and its diverse landscapes. The Allen Davis Round is a 81km 1878m positive ascent circumnavigation of the 14 pillar triangulation points situated on the Gower Peninsula, South Wales. 

Gower (WelshGŵyr) or the Gower Peninsula (Penrhyn Gŵyr) is in South Wales. It projects westwards into the Bristol Channel and is the most westerly part of the historic county of Glamorgan. In 1956, Gower became the first area in the United Kingdom to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The  route was planned and established by Allen Davis and was first run supported on June 4th 2020.

The route was designed to provide a challenging multi-terrain experience of coast path with stunning 360 degree vistas, moor and heath land, forest tracks, sand dunes and beaches opening up some of the less-explored areas of the Gower, letting those who take on the challenge enjoy sweeping views of this ancient landscape and a chance to discover a new perspective of the area.
