IT'S TIME

Run faster than ever before on one of the UK's flattest marathon courses

ABP NEWPORT WALES MARATHON 2019

Sunday 5th May
Newport City Centre

The ABP Newport Wales Marathon is a national marathon for Wales, boasting a fast, scenic route – arguably one of the UK’s flattest marathons – with over 70% of participants claiming a PB in 2018.

Starting and finishing on Newport’s vibrant riverfront, – the route offers iconic landmarks, coastal wildlife, picturesque medieval villages and a high-profile opportunity for locals and visitors alike to experience the recently regenerated city-centre.

The much-anticipated race has finally satisfied the demand for a premier marathon distance mass-participation event in Wales, made possible by the support of Associated British Ports, Newport City Council and the Welsh Government. Nearly 10,000 runners signed up to take on Marathon, 10K and Family Mile in 2018.

The flat, fast supporting 10K race, which attracts some of the UK’s top athletes, gives runners of all abilities the opportunity to get involved in one of Wales’ biggest weekends of mass participation, without committing to the challenging 26.2-mile distance.

The event is delivered by Run 4 Wales, the team behind mass participation events like the Cardiff Half Marathon and VELOTHON Wales.
