About the event

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.
