Cardiff Half & Newport Marathon postponed to 2021

The Cardiff Half Marathon has been rescheduled for 28 March 2021, while the Newport Wales Marathon will now take place on 18 April 2021.

Matt Newman, R4W Chief Executive explained the thinking behind the postponements:

“We have been closely monitoring the situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and the guidance issued by the Government and it is now clear that it will not be possible to stage events of this scale in the autumn.

 

“We would expect the Welsh Government to make further announcements in the coming months on a gradual return to a full sporting calendar. Although lockdown restrictions have recently been eased in Wales, we understand there is no possibility of 27,500 participants and 100,000 spectators gathering safely in Cardiff on 4 October and thousands more three weeks later in Newport on 25 October."

Runners registered for both events have been contacted by email confirming the postponements and the options available to them as a result. Details are also available on the event websites:
