Black diamond shines bright in Newborough Forest
Fans of night trail running will be pleased at news that Always Aim High will host a new event on Anglesey on Saturday 14 September, the Black Diamond Sandman Torchlight Trail. The 5k and 10k race will take place at the woodland trails of Newborough Forest, where runners will fight against the fading light as well as the clock.
The event, which will take place during the Superfeet Sandman Triathlon weekend, also highlights the brand new partnership between Black Diamond and Always Aim High for the upcoming 2019 season.
Partnering with the head torch, climbing, and skiing equipment manufacturers, is an exciting move for the Always Aim High team and will add a different dimension to their portfolio, which includes the Anglesey Half Marathon, Snowdonia Trail Marathon and Conwy Marathon.
The race village in Newborough Forest will host the start and finish line, at which around 200 runners are expected to compete. Over 500 spectators will be present to welcome them back at the end of their adventure.
Always Aim High Events Director Tim Lloyd said “This race is a great addition to the Superfeet Sandman event weekend and will set a brand new challenge to runners, never offered by Always Aim High Events before. We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with Black Diamond for this event and we hope it is the beginning of a great relationship. Black Diamond are an amazing brand and ideal for us at Always Aim High Events. Their high standards reflect ours and we look forward to working with them.”
