The countdown to the Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10k is on, with almost 1,400 people already having signed up to take part – including 15 members of staff from Griffin Mill, the event’s official car sponsor.

This year’s Caerphilly 10k event takes place on Sunday 18th June at 10am, with around 2,500 people from far and wide set to don their running shoes to take part in the ever-popular annual event.

Local car dealership Griffin Mill is throwing its weight behind the event once again this year, providing the official car which will lead participants around the course, passing local landmarks including the Tommy Cooper statue and Caerphilly Castle along the way.

Mark Pardoe, Managing Director at Griffin Mill commented "We are thrilled to be supporting the Caerphilly 10k again this year. As a local dealership servicing the area for over 55 years, we feel it's important to support local events and the community. This year, besides providing cars for the run, we are bringing along a selection of cars from all of our seven brands which can be viewed at the finish line. It's set to be another successful event and we're proud to be a part of it". 

Cllr David Poole, Leader elect at Caerphilly County Borough Council added, “We’re delighted to welcome Griffin Mill on board again this year, and are grateful to them for their ongoing support of this event. The 2017 Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10k looks set to be another real success, welcoming both competitive runners and fundraisers alike to take part in what is always a fantastic occasion”.

There is still time to sign up to take part in the Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10k – entry costs £19 for unaffiliated runners, £17 for affiliated runners and concession entry for over 60s and wheelchair entries costs £17.

Also taking place on Sunday 18th June is the Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 2k, which costs £6.50 to enter and is open to runners aged 8 and over. The 2k is set to be the biggest and best yet, with Sport Caerphilly encouraging local junior sports clubs to wear their club kits and come along and enter.
