We construct ten-dimensional supergravity solutions corresponding to the near horizon limit of IIB fivebranes wrapping special lagrangian three-cycles of constant curvature. The case of branes wrapping a three-sphere provides a gravity dual of pure [Script N] = 2 super--Yang-Mills theory in D = 3. The non-trivial part of the solutions are seven manifolds that admit two G2 structures each of which is covariantly constant with respect to a different connection with torsion. We derive a formula for the generalised calibration for this general class of solutions. We discuss analogous aspects of the geometry that arises when fivebranes wrap other supersymmetric cycles which lead to Spin(7) and SU(N) structures. In some cases there are two covariantly constant structures and in others one.
