Black Diamond Torchlight Trail 2023

Set amid the pine trees and sand dunes of Newborough Forest, with the sun setting and the moon reflecting off the sea this 5k and 10k trail running race is a very special experience for all those who take part.

Held during the popular Sandman Triathlon weekend, the trail race will start and finish in the event village and take our runners around the forest trails before welcoming them back at the end of their adventure.

This is a fun race for all ages and abilities who love trail running and want to try something a bit different!
