1 / 2
This is one of the few triathlons on the calendar with a beach start and a sea swim.
From there, athletes will be treated to the unspoilt scenery of Anglesey as they cycle through the rolling hills.
The triathlon will then finish with a trail run through the remarkable pine forests and then over the dunes for the beach finish.
Entrants can choose from a multitude of Triathlons such as Super Sprint, Sprint, Standard, Legend, or Savage.
The Sandman Savage
The Sandman Savage will take place over Saturday and Sunday. Entrants will compete in the sprint triathlon on Saturday and the Standard triathlon events on Sunday.
The Duathlon races will consist of two running legs and one cycling leg. The first run will take you into the beautiful trails of the Newborough forest, then onto a sandy track for a blissful run along the beach.
On the bike route, you will be kept on your toes with some climbs, sweeping bends and descents.
Finally, entrants will jump off their bike to finish off the duathlon with one last push on foot to the finish.

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!
