Half the distance, all the fun!


The ABP Newport Wales Half is an exciting new addition for 2024.

It takes place alongside the ABP Newport Marathon, which has been expanded into an exciting festival of running with marathon, half marathon, 10K and junior race options.

The ABP Newport Wales Marathon launched in 2018, finally satisfying the demand for a major city-centre marathon in Wales. The route was devised by double Olympic marathon runner Steve Brace, and is one of the flattest marathon courses in Europe. The fast course means that 70% of all finishers have claimed a PB.
