Wales’ premier marathon event will return on Sunday 24th October 2021.
The national marathon of Wales boasts a fast, scenic route – arguably one of the UK’s flattest marathons. 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 6,000 runners signed up to take on Marathon, 10K and Family Mile in 2019.

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.
