ABP Newport Wales Marathon - POSTPONED TO OCTOBER 25th
We (Run 4 Wales) have been closely monitoring the situation surrounding the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) outbreak, aligning our response to the government action plan, whilst making preparations for the likely next steps. This has been done to ensure the safety of those taking part in any upcoming Run 4 Wales events.
Whilst to-date the UK Government has advised that sporting events should take place as normal, we are also aware that the Government is considering banning major public events.
Following similar decisions from the Premier League, the Six Nations and the London Marathon, we have decided that it is in the best interest of runners, spectators, volunteers and event staff to postpone the ABP Newport Wales Marathon & 10K, which was due to be held on 19th April, in an effort to help control the spread of the virus.
Run 4 Wales has been working with Newport City Council to secure an alternative date for the delayed event which will now take place on a rescheduled date of October 25th.
The ABP Newport Wales Marathon boasts one of Europe’s flattest marathon routes, making it the ideal 26.2 miler for both PB chasers and first-timers.The ABP Newport Wales Marathon returns for 2020 on Sunday 19 April. Members of Welsh Athletics can enter this flat and fast marathon with an exclusive £10 discount from just £39!
Entries close 30th March or when the race sells out, whichever comes first.
