Bryn Meadows sponsor the Caerphilly10k

The Caerphilly 10K is set to return for 2017 on Sunday 18th June, under its new name ‘Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10k’.

The popular 10K race returns to Caerphilly with Bryn Meadows as the title sponsor for the event, now named the Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10K.

Following on from 2016’s record breaking success of 2,300 participants taking on the challenge, the Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10k is set be just as popular in 2017. The fantastic course will lead runners in and around Caerphilly town centre, passing local landmarks including the Tommy Cooper statue, as well as offering great views of Caerphilly Castle.

Also returning for 2017 is the Caerphilly 2k run, which offers younger runners the opportunity to experience the timed event. Participants for the 2k race must be at least 8 years of age on the day of the event in order to participate.

Entry fees are £19.00 for unaffiliated entrants, £17.00 for affiliated/Welsh Athletics entrants, £17.00 for concessions (over 60’s and wheelchair users) and £6.50 for 2k runners. All fees include booking fee and transaction charges.

Christina Harrhy, Corporate Director for Communities said: “With over 500 participants already signed up, the Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10K is on track to be yet another great success. The race welcomes people from across the country including both fundraisers and competitive runners and I wish all the competitors the best of luck”.
Gary Mayo, Director of Bryn Meadows Golf, hotel & Spa said: “We are delighted to sponsor the Caerphilly 10k in 2017. Health and wellbeing is at the heart of what we do at Bryn Meadows; whether it be being active on the golf course, working out in our newly refurbished gym or relaxing in the spa. Being a market leader within the Caerphilly Tourism and Hospitality sector, as well as being a family owned business, it is integral for us to support local events to engage with residents and attract visitors to the region.”
