Brecon Carreg announce partnership with Active Leisure Events

Back to our blog

We’re thrilled to announce that Brecon Carreg has signed to be the official water sponsor for Active Leisure Events in 2022.

The partnership will see Brecon Carreg water hydrating runners across a series of multi-award-winning events including the MBNA Chester 10K, the Essar Chester Half Marathon and MBNA Chester Marathon & Metric Marathon.

As well as fuelling runners at the events, there will also be a focus on environmental initiatives with every 330ml bottle provided to runners containing at least 51% recycled plastic.

We’ll also be introducing our popular Plogging Team to the events. Up to 10 runners at each race will complete the course whilst picking up recyclable materials on the route.

Eleri Morgan, Brand & Marketing Manager for Brecon Carreg, said:

“Brecon Carreg is delighted to add such a fantastic portfolio of events to its sponsorship activities. We’re also thrilled to be introducing our plogging initiative to the races which will significantly help to improve recycling rates at every event.”

Callum Shields, Event Director at Active Leisure Events, said:

We are delighted to partner with Brecon Carreg as our official water sponsor.

Bottled water remains the most effective and hygienic way to hydrate runners at our events. The advances Brecon Carreg have made in manufacturing bottles using recycled plastics, combined with their aim to stop using virgin materials altogether by 2025, means that their mineral water remains healthy for our runners and our planet. 

The Plogging team combined with our closed loop event recycling system, compliments our shared goals to help tackle the global challenge to reduce waste. 


If you’d like to volunteer to join the plogging team for the Chester 10K on March 13th or any other Active Leisure race this year, please send an email to

Happy Valentine’s Day! We’re not ones for writing love letters. It’s best left to the finest wordsmith in Wales, Nessa Jenkins – “I won’t lie, you’re not everyone’s cup of tea but at the end of the day when all’s said and done, you’re tidy.”

This is your friendly reminder to stay hydrated today and enjoy the sunshine! #BreconCarreg #WelshWater #StayHydrated
