Ujjiti Channing the Promotions Manager at Run and Become spoke about the store’s involvement with the event

‘We have been involved with Cardiff 10K for a few years now, seeing that this race had great potential. We were absolutely right. Over the years it has become evident how similar the ethos of The Run and Become and Kidney Wales are. Both are dedicated to serving the running community. Not only that, their dedication to raising awareness of such a valuable cause. At each event we meet some amazing families who love this event and who have been supported tirelessly by Kidney Wales.

It has been a wonderful experience seeing how well this race has developed. It has grown massively in numbers and has to be the best, fastest 10K around. It has got bigger and better.

Run and Become are proud and excited to be part of this iconic, amazing race. To see something growing the way this race is, is very exciting, and look forward to it going from strength to strength’
