Route information
Distance: Marathon (26.2 miles)
Elevation: Flat
Terrain: Roads
The route for the ABP Newport Wales Marathon is devised by double Olympic marathon runner Steve Brace.
It starts and finishes on Newport’s vibrant riverfront and boasts being one of the flattest marathon routes in the UK.
The single loop route takes runners past the University of South Wales and the bustling Friars Walk shopping centre before heading over the SDR Bridge, through the east of the city and into its rural areas, then on towards the village of Magor in Monmouthshire. Here, runners can expect a carnival atmosphere around the main village square.
Before a sprint finish along the River Usk, runners will get the chance to take in the coastal wildlife on show at the Gwent Levels and Newport Wetlands – one of the UK’s most popular bird watching sites.
Distance: 10k
Elevation: Flat
Terrain: Roads
It starts and finishes on Newport’s vibrant riverfront, with a flat and fast course passing some of Newport’s most iconic landmarks and the recently revamped city-centre.
It adds an exciting extra dimension to the ABP Newport Wales Marathon, giving runners of all abilities the chance to be a part of one of Wales’ largest weekends of running – without having to complete the challenging marathon distance.

Did the race in 2019
Course couldn't be much flatter. It's all nice country roads which just means there's pockets of support (I gave atmosphere 3/5 for this reason but not necessarily a negative if don't like/need huge crowds of big cities). Due to size it's very relaxed and no stress for bag drops, toilets etc. Well organised with chipped numbers, clear race instructions, app tracker etc. I like these smaller races and would happily run again.

Great marathon, very well organised, route is nice around river beds, very flat and ideal for a PB.Some stretches are a bit boring, but overall experience was very good.Lot of water stations, lucozade drinks and pacers made the whole experience a really enjoyable one.

Excellent route if you want a crack at a PB, really flat with open roads, just one or two bottlenecks at turns

Flat, fast and very well organised. The park & ride for competitors was excellent. There is great support in the city and in the village of Magor.

Everything felt really well organised, loads of portaloos and fast moving bag drop. The course is great, and almost completely flat. Im disappointed that Im busy for next years race but I hope to go back for 2021.
