World Alternative Games

Already famous for its unusual and quirky events, listed here in this brochure, Llanwrtyd Wells is now proud to present: The World Alternative Games 2016.

The Coolest Place to be in 2016 (Lonely Planet), the idea for the Games was born after it was announced that London would be hosting the Olympics in 2012. As one of the greatest sporting events on the calendar, it seemed a wasted opportunity not to hold some sort of celebration in Llanwrtyd to commemorate this.

And so, with this in mind, a small group of people came up with an idea - what about holding Llanwrtyd's very own version of the Olympic Games, but with all the normal events thrown out of the window and replaced with an array of unrecognised and different events that are not part of the official Olympic calendar. These events have competitors who are just as dedicated to their unusual sports as their Olympian counterparts, and what better time to promote as many of these exciting and imaginative events as possible;
