The ABP Newport Wales Marathon is a firm favourite in the Welsh running calendar, boasting one of the flattest marathon courses in the UK.
The 2024 race will host the first fixture in the Welsh 10k Series and the Welsh Marathon Championships for the Master age-groups.
Its route offers iconic landmarks, like the city’s Transporter Bridge and the stunning scenery of the Gwent Levels – with its coastal wildlife and picturesque medieval villages.
Newport is definitely a city on the rise, steeped in history with a multi-cultural vibe – complete with artisan breweries and a rich musical heritage. Races start and finish on the vibrant riverfront in the heart of the regenerated city-centre.
There are a series of Junior Races on offer; a no-pressure, family-focused Fun Run, a Toddler Dash for those taking their first steps into physical activity and a Future Challengers race for talented young athletes and junior club runners looking for an accessible and competitive race.
