The ABP Newport Wales Marathon is returning this Sunday, set to be the largest mass participation event to take place in Wales in 2021. 8,000 people have signed up to run the marathon, 10K, or family mile races which were originally scheduled for April 2020. 

The race will be delivered as a ‘Breathable Event’ – providing a great event day experience and atmosphere with a focus on responsibility and safety. A number of measures will be in place to help keep people safe and prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
