The 25,000 runners set to take on next month’s Cardiff University/Cardiff Half Marathon will be rewarded with a free celebratory drink after crossing the finish line thanks to Brains.
The world-famous Cardiff brewery have teamed up with Wales’ largest mass-participation event to provide runners and spectators with a pair of exclusive offers at Brains pubs across the city.
Finishers can claim a free drink at one of 13 pubs after taking on the flat, fast, iconic course on October 1st. A free pint of Brains beer or a glass of Prosecco is on offer – all runners have to do is show off their finishers’ medal.
Thousands of spectators will line the streets of the Welsh capital to cheer on the runners, and Brains is making sure their support does not go unrecognised. Both runners and spectators can get 25 percent off their food bill at 30 participating pubs.
Tim Lewis, PR Manager at Brains Brewery, said: “The Cardiff University/Cardiff Half Marathon has grown to become one of Wales’ biggest sports events and we are delighted to be involved for the first time.
“As an independent, family-owned company with its roots in Cardiff we are proud to be working with another local company, Run 4 Wales, as they deliver a world-class event in our city. Our pubs will be rewarding the half marathon heroes with a free drink and 25% off their food bill so they can celebrate in style after running 13.1 miles.
“A team of employees from Brains will also be running the half marathon and we would like to wish everyone good luck for the big day.”
Brains have also set-up a number of Brains Spectator Hubs along the route where the team will be giving out free flags and goodies to supporters to create the best-possible atmosphere for the runners.
Matt Newman, Chief Executive at event organisers Run 4 Wales, said: “Brains Brewery is synonymous with sport in the Welsh capital, and we’re delighted to welcome them on-board for this year’s record-breaking Cardiff University/Cardiff Half Marathon.
“Brains will not only be on-hand to offer runners and supporters the perfect post-race pint, they will also be stoking up the atmosphere at their Brains Spectator Hubs along the route. If friends, family and local residents didn’t have enough reason to get out and cheer the runners onto new personal bests – they do now!”
