The world's first running and music festival, founded in Wales in 2016. Under the summer sun, you'll enjoy trail running, trips to the beach, talks, heavenly food plus wellness and adventure activities. As the stars come out, stages host a cheery-picked selection of DJs and live acts.
Live your best life as a strong, accomplished & mindful trail runner. Join for the carefully curated & inspirational live content, stay for the vibrant & supportive running community.
Love Trails Festival goes on tour to wild and inspiring destinations around the UK and Europe. According to British anthropologist Robin Dunbar, the “magic number” for social groups is 150. So this is how we've capped numbers for these micro-festivals of trail running, adventure & music.
Travel to the majestic Faroe Islands with Love Trails. At Átjan Wild Islands, technical trail races, outdoor adventures, Faroese culture and live music happily collide for a 5-day festival experience like no other on Earth. Wild, inspirational and sublime. You'll never run anywhere like it again.
While almost all exercise will succeed at the very basics of making you fitter or stronger, there is no other single activity that will reward you with as many benefits for brain and body as trail running. That's why we started Global Trail Running Day. Our mission is to get more humans trail running.
We are passionate about trail running, adventure, music, community, the great outdoors & understanding the world and our place in it. We believe we have been gifted one precious life from the universe. And that to live that one life well is to fill it to the brim with memorable & special moments.
"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life" - Mary Oliver
Love Trails creates life-enhancing, unique & creative trail running experiences so we and our community can live life to the full.
Why trail running? We believe that trail running offers us the possibility to deeply connect emotionally with wild places & the people we run alongside. We believe trail running changes how we see, feel and connect with the world around us. We are passionate trail runners because we know that no other sport or recreational activity provides so many benefits to our body, brain and even the natural environment.

"Probably the most enjoyable, relaxed festival experience I’ve had. Rarely a queue for facilities or bars but always lively and something going on for everyone. Great music and party atmosphere in the evenings too!"
“Awesome trail run to the blue pool with these guys. The sea was perfectly calm and refreshing after 10k."
"Waded rivers, ran through marshes, climbed up dunes to jump into the sea and graze my knee. 10/10 would recommend 🌊 ·"
"Thanks for creating an event that allowed us to push past our mental/ physical limits and experience the untouched wild"
"Simply the friendliest, most scenic, chilled, fun-filled, loved-up, work-hard-play-hard, spotlessly clean and feel-good festival I've ever been to. Thank you to all the LT team and support crews, you were magical. xoxo"
