Scramble through the Dinorwic Slate Quarry with this unique 5K. Great for those of all levels, the race involves some challenging climbs which will be made well worth it by the panoramic views over to Snowdon. Come to soak in the atmosphere of the Slateman 10 weekend or for the epic surroundings.

Quarryman Run 5KM route

The Quarryman 5KM run is in conjunction with the Slateman weekend which plays host to a triathlon, duathlon, and swim events. This is a perfect opportunity for those supporting the above races and who wish to get in on the action with a smaller race.

The route puts you in the shoes of North Wales Quarrymen, as you race around the historic Dinorwic Slate Quarry in Llanberis. During the course, you will experience all of the quarry's key sites such as tunnel relics, terraces, inclined planes and derelict machinery.

Despite a few tough climbs, once you are at the top you will behold panoramic views across the lakes and over to Snowdon.

Afterwards, enjoy the evening celebrations with all the weekends athletes.

Meet the organiser

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!
