Aiming High In 2021
Always Aim High gets green light to kick off 2021 events calendar...
The running, cycling and triathon events organisation, Always Aim High Events, had been looking forward to celebrating its 10th anniversary last year, with a full calendar of spectacular races planned. The pandemic put a halt to all of this, but now, finally, 15 months later the green light has been given to run their first event - The Snowman Triathlon (31 July-1 August).
Managing director and co-owner Tim Lloyd said: "This last year and a half has been unprecedented for us as a small independent business, the uncertainty of not knowing if and when events would return has been extremely difficult. This news today that we finally have the green light for our first triathlon is the best feeling.
"The one thing that has got us through is the support we have had throughout the pandemic from the Always Aim High community, the love for our events has been proven through the kindness of our participants, who have stayed with us since our first deferrals back in 2020."
Following an announcement made by the Welsh Government last week that outdoor sporting events have now been given the go ahead, it will allow the company to resume what is left of their events calendar for 2021. Although this is great news it does mean that some that have already been pushed into 2022 will not go ahead this year.
Tim added: "To be fair to our loyal customers we had to make a call earlier on this year on some of our events that were due to take place at the start of summer, this included our iconic Snowdonia Trail Marathon which attracts hundreds of participants from all over the country which will now run in 2022. Therefore, our event calendar will resume from the end of July with the Snowman Triathlon being our first event."
If you're yet to 'try a tri' but fancy running in some amazing Welsh scenery, just hang fire till the autumn when the Conwy Marathon 2021 Event is scheduled for 26 September. This festival of running offers a full 26.2 mile, 20 mile and 10 mile event starting in the Victorian Coastal Town of Llandudno. Organisers bill it as a super special and scenic marathon, full of history and gorgeous views, combined with fast running along the Conwy coastline and quiet country roads.
With many taking up running and cycling during the pandemic, Always Aim High told runABC they are excited to see growth in the sporting events industry and plans are already in place for some brand-new events in 2022. So watch this space for more details!
