Location Anglesey, Wales Date 15 September 2019 Featuring the Slateman, Snowman and Sandman, Always Aim High’s Adventure Tri Series continues to grow each season, with more and more athletes heading to North Wales to take on the gorgeous, friendly and smoothly-organised, short-course challenges. And for 2019, it’s literally the races that are expanding, with a middle-distance Legend event added to each race in the series.
The Sandman seen here is located in Anglesey’s Newborough Forest and starts with a 1.9km sea swim on Llanddwyn Beach, which gives way to a 93km bike tour of the Welsh island. The concluding half- marathon, mixed-terrain run is set on forest trails and the titular sand before ending in one of AAH’s reliably-good event villages. Sprint, Classic and Duathlon races are also available during the weekend. alwaysaimhighevents.com
