What an adventure might look like...
North Wales is known as the adventure capital of Europe and is one of the best places to test the limits of adventure and performance. Its heritage is long, with expeditions such as Edmund Hillary’s successful ascent of Everest utilising the challenging landscape and geology that Wales has to offer, creating a perfect environment to train for the ultimate challenge on Earth.
Whilst out on a mini adventure of their own, the teams from Always Aim High Events, and the adventure boat tour company RibRide, decided to launch their own unique challenge.
Taking inspiration from the hugely popular Adventure Triathlon Series and the unique coastal path of Wales, a challenge was set to create a bespoke event for those looking to pass a significant milestone or two. The exhilarating RIBs first propel you towards a start point of your choosing, you can then run along the beautiful coastal path on your own bespoke small group adventure. Celebrate turning 50 in style with a 50km Run or have unique take on a 10-year wedding anniversary with a 10-mile run. Whatever the idea we can accommodate to your needs.
Supported by the Always Aim High team, the RIBs set off early morning along the Menai Straits and head to sea. As the sun rises, the coastline rolls past until you’ll reach the drop off point. Like a highly trained squad of Royal Marines, you will deploy to shore where the Always Aim High team will be waiting for you with running gear and your packs. After a quick refuel you’ll be off along one of the most wonderful stretches of coastline imaginable with your only chosen goal, surviving the long run home.
A coastal adventure brings sea cliffs, beaches, estuary crossings, forests and fields. It’s like going on a real life “mission”. You will get wet, muddy, tired and the wind will be blowing the wrong way in your face. You will want to give up, but you will want to succeed even more. The support team will be your guides, but they’ll be discreet so you can enjoy this adventure with your team or other special person.
You may see seals or dolphins playing on tidal over-falls, you may see the sun set again and you will see the end getting ever nearer. That refreshing drink at the end, that feeling you could eat two meals with no guilt over the rich chocolate pudding. Your health tracker has recorded more steps than you can count.

In partnership with our adventure team at RibRIde your team will be whisked off to Menai Bridge. It’ll be ‘All Aboard’ for an exhilarating boat journey accelerating to speeds in excess of 50mph. Sights to see along the way include a unique view of Beaumaris Castle and the town’s brightly coloured seafront houses.
Heading out of the Straights, you will take in the sights of an old seaplane factory and mine workings. Heading out into the open sea you will pass old shipwrecks on approach to Puffin Island, or as it’s called in welsh Ynys Seiriol. The island is named after Saint Seiriol who founded a monastery opposite the island at Penmon Point. This uninhabited Island is home to the largest nesting cormorant population in the UK and, of course, the famous Puffins (seasonal visitors). You will have a chance to watch the wildlife, see the massive colony of seals and experience a bird-spotting bonanza.
Once back on dry land, the adventure continues and culminates with a trip to Zip World. Here you will take part in a truly unique and exhilarating experience, on the fastest zip line in the world. You will soar over Penrhyn Quarry where you could travel at speeds of over 100mph while you take in the breath-taking views and feel the freedom of flight.
