Cardiff Bay is supplied by two rivers to form a 500-acre freshwater lake just south of the city centre. Swimming in the bay is only allowed with authorised access, so for exclusive use of this unique course, sign up now!
Each of the 4 distances is a point to point course, starting by the location of the former Dr. Who Centre and finishing at the end of Roald Dahl Plas.
The event was created primarily for triathletes looking to warm up, or gain some open water experience, but all levels and abilities are welcome. So whether you're new to open-water swimming, in need of some training, or want to challenge yourself with a new distance, this event is perfect.
There are 4 distances to choose from, with some of the longer distances completing laps of the 1500m course.
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!
