Newport is no stranger to welcoming the world class events. The city was the site of one of the largest global sporting events ever staged in Wales, when the Celtic Manor played host to a European Ryder Cup victory in 2010.
World leaders arrived for the NATO summit four years later during an exciting regeneration project to help establish the city as a modern, vibrant hub for industry and sport.
As you would expect from a Welsh city, Newport is passionate about sport and is very excited to be hosting the ABP Newport Wales Marathon.
By expanding its events programme, Newport City Council hope to raise the profile of the city and attract more visitors and investment.
