Info for Locals
Always Aim High Events is an independent Welsh company created to showcase the beautiful surroundings of our home country to athletes from across the globe. We work closely with the communities that live in the places our events are hosted to minimise any disruption and maximise opportunities for local businesses to benefit.
We work with local authorities and safety advisory groups and have all of our events permitted by the relevant National Governing Bodies; this ensures that they meet the highest standards of safety and are professionally run with minimum impact on the local area.
As members of the Snowdonia Society, we actively volunteer to maintain environmental standards as well as being part of and supporting local community groups and charities through donations, made possible by our event entry fees. We respect our culture and language, all of our event signage and website are available in Welsh. Our products and services are all locally sourced.
The information below provides specific information for local people on how this event will run.
The safety of local communities and all who attend our events is our utmost priority; please go to our Covid-19 page to see the most up-to-date information on how we will be delivering a covid secure event
Usually, the first race begins at 09:00 with athletes starting to arrive on-site from 08:00. The last race is expected to end around 12:30 and the event village will close at 14:00. Specific race start times are changeable and will be detailed in the Final Instructions on the website, available 10 days prior to the race.
Traffic Management & Road closures
There will be no closures for this event.
The NRW Beach, Airman's and Cwningar car parks will be open for public use. Access will be maintained to the locals' car park.
Spectators are welcome at our events to cheer on everyone taking part! We pride ourselves on an exciting and positive atmosphere at all of our events, and we would love you to come along to add to the warm Welsh welcome that our local communities offer.
Spectators will need to use the appropriate Pay and Display facilities when parking. Council wardens are likely to ticket poorly parked vehicles as they present a real risk to the safety of all competitors.
The best place to watch everyone will be around the event village where the start/finish line will be.
You are welcome to enter the event village enjoy the atmosphere and visit our trade stands.
We are always on the lookout for people to join our awesome team of Marshals and Volunteers and it is a great way to raise funds for your local community group or charity. If you are a local business and have offers over the event weekend please contact us so we can include you in our communications with our athletes. There are also opportunities for stands in our Event Village.
Signage and Litter
Always Aim High Events have always had a zero-tolerance to litter policy; any athlete found to have intentionally littered will be disqualified and could face a lifetime ban from our events. All our signage is removed immediately after the event and we conduct a full litter pick as stated in our environmental policy. We will respond to any reports of left signage or litter immediately so in the unlikely event of this please contact us.
