Caerleon 5 Miler Sponsorship

The Caerleon 5 Miler is now an annual fixture in the running calendar!

Last year Caerleon Running Club celebrated its 20th anniversary with the inaugural running of their 5 mile race. After proving a huge success in 2023 the club decided to make it an annual event. But could they top last years race? The answer… a resounding ‘yes’!

A beautiful sun kissed evening saw the event expanded to 350 runners this year and selling out within one week, once again starting and finishing in Caerleon’s famous amphitheatre.

As avid supporters of various sporting events around South East Wales, AR Digital were once more the main t-shirt sponsors. We are proud to sponsor several events and teams throughout the year and this race has quickly become a highlight in our calendar.

We would like to give our warm congratulations to all the runners who took part, from social and fun runners to competitive club runners looking to improve on last years time or get one over on a friendly rival from a neighbouring run club. 

This year Nettie Rose of Lliswerry Runners defended her ladies title and Sam Griffiths of Caldicot Running Club triumphed in the men’s race. Well done both!

Honourable mentions have to go to AR Digital employees Dylan Symmonds who couldn’t quite defend his junior title but came very close with a second place, Technical Director Alex Porazinski who gave a very competitive run placing 41st overall and Customer Liaison Manager Anna Symmonds who joined the army of volunteers and marshals who ensured the event ran smoothly. 

And what makes this race even more special? It was again 100% not for profit with all proceeds over running costs going to the very deserving local charity, Sparkle, to help support them in the great work they do in the area.

So this just leaves us to say… if you want to take part in a great local event, with the promise of a fabulous technical t-shirt, a stunning wooden medal, a free beer, fun after party, all in beautiful surroundings, for a nominal fee and support great local charities, be sure to keep an eye for next years race… we’re sure it will sell out even faster!
