Cardiff Half Marathon


Did you know that over 80,000 bottles of Brecon Carreg water will be distributed at the 2014 Lloyds Bank Cardiff Half Marathon?
With just over a week to go until race day (Sunday 5th October) runners up and down the country are putting in last minute training sessions in readiness  for Wales’ largest mass participation event. A fundamental element of any train and prepare programme is understanding the importance of hydration when partaking in endurance exercise. Speaking on the topic Race Director of the Lloyds Bank Cardiff Half Marathon said:

“Successfully  managing water consumption can be  the difference between runners having a positive or negative experience and it is essential that participants are fully hydrated in the days prior to and during the race. However,   people often make the mistake of drinking too much fluid just before the start, which we never recommend.

It really is about getting the balance right and  having regular intakes of water throughout the race. Our water stations at the Lloyds Bank Cardiff Half Marathon are strategically placed to help runners manage their hydration levels. Remember when you feel thirsty you are actually already dehydrated, so you need to think ahead. We are delighted to announce that Brecon Carreg are now an Official Partner of the Lloyds bank Cardiff Half Marathon and we  look forward to working with them on race day.

The 2014 event is the largest Cardiff Half Marathon ever, with over 20,000 entrants. Brecon Carreg will be supplying water to all runners taking part, with  over 80,000 bottles being handed out via the course water stations situated at  Penarth Road, Cardiff Bay, Ninian Road and Lake Road West.
Speaking about their involvement, Ian Beattie, Marketing Manager for Brecon Carreg said ” We are delighted to be the Official Water of the Cardiff Half Marathon for the fourth consecutive year, being the No.1 best selling water in Wales and partnering the No.1 half marathon in Wales makes for a great association of the best in Wales.”
