Experience one of the UK's flattest marathons. Enjoy an unbeatable Welsh sporting welcome.


Sunday 25th October 2020
Newport City Centre

The third edition of the ABP Newport Wales Marathon & 10K will take place on Sunday 25th October 2020.

The popular race is a firm favourite on the Welsh running calendar, boasting one of the flattest marathon courses in Europe. Over 70% of all finishers have claimed a PB on a route that 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.

The fast and fun supporting 10K race, which attracts some of the UK’s top athletes, gives runners of all abilities the opportunity to get involved in the festival of running, without committing to the challenging 26.2-mile distance.

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, where runners can expect electric atmosphere and a high-level of event organisation alongside a warm Welsh welcome.

The event is delivered by Run 4 Wales, the team behind events like the Cardiff Half Marathon and has been made possible by the support of Associated British Ports, Newport City Council and the Welsh Government.
