Notes to Editors:
Founded by fitness and endurance sports enthusiast, Charlie Evans, Bonk is a UK-based lifestyle and performance apparel label for the athletic community.
From humble beginnings selling a small range of t-shirts at South East England triathlon events, Bonk has gone on to deliver successful lifestyle clothing collections, the first ever company to design casual wear dedicated to the fast-growing world of triathletes, and more latterly, quality technical training wear.
Bonk was borne out of an addiction to the swim, bike, run lifestyle and though its roots lie firmly in Triathlon, the brand is evolving and aspires to unify people with a passion for fitness and endurance sports. Training and pushing physical boundaries is the very heartbeat of the brand, echoed in Bonk’s ‘Live to Train’ mantra. Bonk is committed to the athletic lifestyle but also prefers not to take itself too seriously; a sense of fun underpins the entire brand ethos. This is reflected both in the playfulness of the brand name - Bonk is the jargon term used by endurance athletes to describe a condition when the glycogen stores in the liver and muscles are depleted, resulting in a major performance drop – and the fresh, alternative clothing that celebrates the camaraderie, the fun, the dedication, and the competitive spirit that are all part of being an athlete.
About Always Aim High Events
Always Aim High Events was founded as a sporting events company in 2011 by childhood friends Tim Lloyd and Nigel ‘Kenny’ Kendrick.
The very first event in 2011 was the now legendary Snowdonia Slateman Triathlon, which was this year voted one of the very best triathlons in the world. The equally iconic Sandman and Snowman Triathlon’s soon followed to become the Adventure Triathlon Series.
The early company ethos of providing the very best quality sporting events in some of the most iconic and stunning locations available stands today. In 2017, Always Aim High Events are providing an impressive cross section of sporting events. From mainstays like the Adventure Triathlon Series, the hugely popular closed road Cardiff Triathlon, the award winning SCOTT Snowdonia Trail Marathon and a range of breathtaking cycling sportives, Always Aim High Events is your first choice for sporting events in the UK.
