This is the date of the ABP Newport Marathon and 10K 2019

Following the success of the 2018 ABP Newport Marathon, which had almost 10,000 runners sign up to take on the Marathon, 10K and Family Mile, the running event is set to return next year.

We are pleased to announce that the marathon and 10k will be returning on Sunday, May 5, 2019.

The ABP Newport Wales Marathon is the national marathon of Wales and boasts 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 scenes of 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.

To mark the launch, a limited number of discounted launch entry tickets are now available for £45.
