Newport 2018 Marathon
April 2018 will see Newport in Wales host a marthon which will be a full 26.2 miles in length.
Association of Run 4 Wales has confirmed there is enough demand to host a full marathon next year in Newport. The event was due to take place in Cardiff but is now switched to Newport with tickets currently on sale for anyone
who wishes to participate in the event.
Organisers already know that around 200,000 runners were unsuccessful in their attempt at running in the London
marathon. They hope the runners will apply for the Welsh marathon.
The race is expected to be flat but fast with runners taking in the famous scenery and landmarks of the city of Newport.
