TO MARK the re-opening of our Barry Island store, we are announcing a sponsorship deal with local running club, Penarth and Dinas Runners, for their 2017 Porthkerry 5 Multi-Terrain Race.
Cadwaladers will provide sponsorship of the 300 race t-shirts and goody bags, which will enable the organisers to provide the same top-rated runner experience as last year’s sell-out race.
Our Barry Island cafe recently re-opened for business following extensive refurbishment. The beach front cafe has been redesigned around the needs of its customers, to allow them to relax and enjoy their amazing coffee and ice creams as they watch the world go by.
The newly renamed Cadwaladers Porthkerry 5 MT Race 2017 will take place at 10am on Sunday, May 7, at Porthkerry Country Park in Barry.
As part of their commitment to employee health and well-being, a team of runners from Cadwaladers will train for and take part in the race. They will be led by operations manager, Paul Morton, who’s also an active member of Penarth and Dinas Runners.
Yvonne Williams, chair of Penarth and Dinas Runners’ said: “We are very grateful to Cadwaladers for their sponsorship of our 2017 Porthkerry 5 MT Race.
“It’s a very popular event on the South Wales running calendar and in 2015 hosted the prestigious Welsh Short Course Trail Championship.
“Cadwaladers’ support will allow us to continue to provide a great value race for runners and help raise money for the club’s nominated charity.
“The race t-shirts are always very well received and can be regularly spotted right across the South Wales running scene.”
Paul Morton, Cadwaladers operations manager said: “Cadwaladers is very proud to be associated with such a prestigious event in the heart of the Vale.
“We are really looking forward to being involved with what is sure to be another brilliant race.
“Cadwaladers is committed to helping local causes and charities and our support of this race really enables us to do that.
“Thank you to our preferred water supplier, Princes Gate who have kindly offered to supply the bottled water for the runners.
“Everything is in place for a great day and our team’s already counting down the days to the start.”
All 300 Porthkerry 5 MT race places sold out in 2016, so early entry is advised when registration opens on February 24 at 6pm.
