The Slateman will kick off the Always Aim High Adventure Championship 2020, followed by the Odlo Snowman in August, and the Superfeet Sandman in September.

Race founder Tim Lloyd said “The Slateman was our first ever event and we are immensely proud that this year is our 10th Anniversary. It’s been an incredible journey to get this far, and we’ve got plenty more to come. We’ve got big things lined up for the event next year to mark our 10th year. We’ve had to move the date to June to have longer days so we can fit it all in!

“We’ve got so many things planned. As well as the iconic Triathlon, we’ve added the Standard distance to the Duathlon, included Open Water Swimming Races, plus we’ve got junior events, and a unique run through the slate quarries which we will be announcing very soon. The event village will offer great family entertainment for all the spectators and we’ve got some other things up our sleeve too.”
