"The finish is overrated. The start is only the beginning. But the space between, where the miles and moments become an ocean between the waves, that’s where the magic happens. The experience waits in the distance".
This is Black Diamond's philosophy on trail running, and one which sits perfectly with the events that will now carry their name, the Black Diamond Yr Wyddfa | Snowdon24 and the Black Diamond Torchlight Trail.
Black Diamond are a company with a rich history of adventure. You can’t tell the history of climbing and mountain sports without telling the history of Black Diamond. Born from the passion and ethos of Yvon Chouinard and his friends in 1965, the company was taken on by its employees in 1989, and moved to Salt Lake City, to be at the base of the Wasatch mountains in the USA.
Experts in climbing, skiing and all mountain sport equipment, Black Diamond's ethos is to create equipment for the most technical, demanding users in the harshest environments. They endeavour to meet that need with innovation, rigorous engineering, and performance. For these and many other reasons, we are pleased to announce that Always Aim High Events & Black Diamond will be partnering to deliver two of our most exciting trail races of the 2023 season.
‘We are excited to partner Black Diamond for these two iconic running events. Their focus on attention to details and delivering the best possible user experience matches our own; this, along with being an inspiring and innovative brand means they are the perfect fit for us at Always Aim High Events. We are looking forward to working with them in 2023, working alongside respected and successful brands like Black Diamond is key to our future plans and gives us the opportunity to introduce our customers to some amazing products’ - Tim Lloyd, Director at Always Aim High Events
