Route information
Terrain Mixed
10k
The race begins on the wide stone forest track next to the beach, where you will catch stunning views of the Llyn Peninsula and Llanddwyn Island. Upon reaching the Island, a right turn takes the runners into the pine forest on single track sandy trails. The course then loops around on the path dividing the forest and the open Newborough Warren, allowing for spectacular views out to sea. One final turn brings the runners right back to where they started and a rousing reception from the spectators at the finish line.
Half Marathon
The course takes you through the trees onto the stunning Llanddwyn Island and onwards to beautiful winding woodland trails which once hosted the Commonwealth Mountain and Ultra Distance Running Championships. You’ll catch glimpses of the Llyn Peninsula and the mountains of Eryri (Snowdonia) amongst other incredible views. With loads of single track forest trails, quiet forest views and sandy running trails, there is something for everyone in this race. The course loops round to bring runners back to where they started and a hero's welcome from the spectators on the finish line.

Always Aim High Events
Always Aim High Events was founded in 2010 by Tim Lloyd and Nigel 'Kenny' Kendrick. The first event was the now iconic Slateman Triathlon 2011 attracting just over 400 competitors (it now regularly exceeds 1,000), with a vision that included the Snowman and Sandman - the three events which now make up the Adventure Triathlon Series. From that one event we now host 34 all inclusive events over 9 weekends, with many more planned for 2019 and beyond. In 2015 Always Aim High Community Events was set up as a not for profit organisation to help with engaging with and hosting local community events. At Always Aim High we are extremely proud about delivering the UK's ultimate triathlon, cycling, running and swimming challenges in the most beautiful and iconic locations that we can find. From epic mountain, coastal and city triathlons, to breathtaking cycle sportives which cover the length and bredth of Snowdonia, there's something for everyone at Always Aim High Events!
