ABP Newport Wales Marathon 2018 | NEWPORT, WALES

Running for a charity is an amazing thing to do.

Knowing your run has helped others, gives a huge boost to the satisfaction you’ll feel on finishing the race. You’ll also be more highly motivated during your training and the race itself.

We encourage runners to fundraise for our Lead Charity Partner the NSPCC, but it’s up to you.

Several of our Official Charities have free or discounted rate spaces available.  They can offer you official sponsorship forms, details on how you can fundraise with JustGiving and offer specialist help and support. Their details can be seen below.
