A national marathon for Wales on one of the UK’s flattest race routes
The ABP Newport Wales Marathon will offer a brand-new running experience on 29 April, 2018. The much-anticipated race will finally satisfy the demand for a premier marathon distance mass-participation event in Wales, made possible by the support of Associated British Ports, Newport City Council and the Welsh Government.
The route will be one of the UK’s flattest and fastest marathon courses - taking in a host of iconic landmarks, picturesque medieval villages and Newport’s recently regenerated city-centre.
The event will be delivered by Run 4 Wales, the team behind mass participation events like the Cardiff University / Cardiff Half Marathon and the Cardiff & Vale College Cardiff Bay Run.
