Brand new for 2019 - the Black Diamond Sandman Torchlight Trail

Always Aim High Events are proud to present this 5k & 10k event in Newborough Forest on the 14th September.

As part of the growing trend of night trail running, over 150 runners are expected to take part in this brand new event in Newborough Forest over the Superfeet Sandman Triathlon weekend. Set on the incredible woodland trails of Newborough Forest, the race will pit runners against the fading light as well as the clock.

The event highlights the brand new partnership with Black Diamond for the upcoming 2019 season. Partnering with head torch, climbing, and skiing equipment manufacturers, this event will be by head torch light adding another element to the challenge.

The race village in the Newborough Forest will host the start and finish line, we expect to attract over 500 spectators to cheer the runners out and welcome them back at the end of their adventure.

You may have already guessed, head torches are mandatory kit for this race. 


Bring your four-legged pals to join in the fun! Canicross runners can take part in either the 5k or 10k events. Please make sure that your dog can be easily seen in low-light conditions and limit to one dog per person.
