Enter Sandman! Entries now open

Race entry now live for Anglesey-set event from Always Aim High

Always Aim High Events have announced that entries for the Anglesey Sandman Triathlon are now open. The North Wales-set triathlon, which takes place on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September 2016, is expected to sell-out quickly, with athletes advised to secure their place here.

From the makers of the Slateman, the Anglesey Sandman was first launched in 2011 and offers a challenge for everyone regardless of fitness and experience.

The triathlon sees competitors take on the clear-waters for a 1km open sea swim, some of the most beautiful roads of Anglesey for a challenging 60km bike leg and the Newborough forest for the final 10km trail run.

The Sandman sprint event features much of the same scenery and will again take place on the Saturday. The Sprint race features a 400m (swim), 25km (bike) and 5km (run). Triathletes also have the option of competing over two days at the Sandman Weekender.

The Sandman has been a sell out event for three consecutive years and the 2016 edition is expected to be no different.
