The Newport 10k originally existed as the Newport Carnival 10k, where runners ran through the town as part of the route and were part of the carnival parade.
In 2018, the race was reborn as the Newport & District 10k. After the 2019 edition, the race was paused for 3 years due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Starting and finishing at the historic Longford Hall, about 1 mile west of Newport, the race takes runners on a tour of the countryside surrounding Newport and the village of Edgmond. Much of the race is run off-road, with a few road sections, and around 100m of climbing is featured. There will also be a fun run for children aged 3-14, and the entry on the day only.
This event is part of Newport.
