Sandman Torch Light Trail routes

Spice up your Saturday night with a trail run through the towering pines and dunes of Newborough Forest. Runners will chase the sun as it dips below the horizon, and have their way lit by the moon reflecting off the sea. This race is a great opportunity for those new to trail running to get a taste of the action at a well-organised event in a stunning location.

Canicross runners are also invited to participate, so make sure to bring your furry friends along to join in the fun.

The course is a 5km course, 5km runners will complete one lap, and 10km runners will complete 2 laps.

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!
