Always Aim High Director Tim Lloyd said: “The 2021 Superfeet Sandman has been just amazing. We’ve had such an amazing weekend of racing; after missing this fabulous event last year it has been so good to be back at Traeth Llandwyn. It was incredible to see huge numbers of people returning to Anglesey plus the race action being televised to a worldwide audience, it’s fantastic for triathlon, duathlon and the North Wales region.”

“The Sandman is such a friendly and challenging weekend, it attracts a really diverse range of competitors, and who can blame them coming back time and time again to race in what has to be one of the most beautiful Triathlons and Duathlons in the race calendar.

“We’d like to extend a massive thank you to every one of our athletes for joining us in addition to their families and friends. We’d also like to thank our title partners Superfeet and our other race sponsors for their continued support as well as the local community of Newborough and Natural Resource Wales for being such amazing hosts.”

“Lastly, we’d like to thank our amazing marshals and volunteers, without whom we the race just wouldn’t be possible”
