Like you, we have been closely monitoring the situation surrounding the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus). The government’s current advice states that mass participation events should go ahead, so we continue to plan for the upcoming ABP Newport Wales Marathon & 10K whilst making event delivery provisions to ensure the safety of those taking part, spectating or volunteering.
We will continue to monitor updates and advice given by UK Government, World Health Organisation and other UK public bodies whilst making contingency plans should a ban on mass gatherings or events be imposed. We will keep runners updated on the situation and provide more details on options available, should anything change as soon as we have more information.
Our thoughts remain with those directly affected by COVID-19 and the family and friends of those who have sadly passed away.
