How to get there

This year, the Race HQ will be at Newport Stadium which is located at Newport International Sports Village. This is in the same location as Bar Amber, which was previous years HQ. The Start of the race will be at Lliswerry Secondary School, Nash Road which is about a 10 minute walk from Race HQ. Portable toilets will be available at the Start area.

The Newport Stadium Race HQ are accessed via the Southern Distributor Road that runs south of Newport joining Junction 28 of the M4 (Tredegar Park) to Junction 24 of the M4 (The Coldra/Celtic Manor).

For those arriving from outside Newport we feel it is easiest to follow the route in from Junction 24 of the M4.

The Newport Stadium is well signposted and quite large but you should note that the entrance is from behind the Carcraft Supermarket

Parking

Parking for the race is at Newport Stadium. There is no parking school and please do not park in the street near it as this will cause congestion. Additional parking is available at the Tennis Centre and Velodrome within the sports village complex but may be limited by other activities.

NOTE: WE HAVE ACCESS TO THE SCHOOL GROUNDS ONLY.  ANY ATTEMPT TO ENTER ANY OF THE SCHOOL BUILDINGS WILL COMPROMISE THE FUTURE OF OUR RACE.
