ABP Newport Wales Marathon & 10K | NEWPORT, WALES

Transferring Your Place To Another Runner

If you can no longer take part in the 2021 ABP Newport Wales Marathon or 10K due to injury, illness or other circumstances, you have until the our transfer deadline on Friday 12 March at 4pm to transfer your entry to another runner so you can receive a refund.

You will find a transfer link in the confirmation email you received when you signed up, or you can login (below) to your ACTIVE account with your email address and password.

Transfers are conducted through our online entry system, ACTIVE:

  • Existing participant generates a transfer link
  • Existing participant sends transfer link to runner wishing to take their un-used space
  • New runner signs up for the race, paying full price for their entry
  • Once the registration is complete, existing participant receives refund

Our transfer deadline is also your last chance to make any final changes to your entry. These include:

  • Your predicted finish time (this will determine your starting pen)
  • Your postage address (where your race pack will be delivered)
  • Your t-shirt size
  • Your Welsh language preferences (this will determine whether you get a Cymraeg badge on your runner number)

No transfers or changes to entries will be possible past the transfer deadline as race packs (with runners specific medical and address details) go into production after this date.


To help entrants find a runner to transfer to, we have set up a post in the Official Facebook Event where we are encouraging those unable to take part to share their transfer link. We will not be re-opening entries until later this year and those now keen to run in October will be encouraged to take up a transfer link from someone unable to take part.

Please do not share personal or payment information on Facebook and use the official transfer service – which only requires you to share your transfer link.
