2019 Race Report

Following on from a jam-packed day focus moved to the night ahead as runners took to the trails of Newborough Forest guided only by torchlight.

As the sun set over Llanddwyn island over 100 runners lined up on the start line in the event village.

The 5k and 10k races both set off at 19:30 with the 5km runners taking on one loop of the course and the 10k runners heading back out again a second time after re-energising at the event village aid station.

Emerging from the forest and down towards the beach runners were rewarded with a spectacularly dramatic sunset sky of reds and pinks. A fitting end to a successful event that looks to become a staple in the Always Aim High Events Calendar.
