After the inaugural event proved a resounding success with its 10,000+ runners, this fast and picturesque marathon is back.
The national marathon of Wales boasts a fast, scenic route – arguably one of the UK’s flattest marathons – with over 70% of participants claiming a PB in 2018.
"I ran in the inaugural Newport marathon, got a PB, and have signed up for 2019 already." - Jen
"Nice medal, good tshirt, congrats to Steve Brace for a super route & to all at Run4Wales for putting on a great event. I am so coming back next year!" - Cat Johnson
"All in all a great marathon. I managed to get a PB (by 10 seconds) and also saw loads of others get their PB's. If you want a flat, fast, PB marathon then this is the one for you. A great alternative if you don't get a London spot." - Marc Barrow
