The Admiral City of Newport Half Marathon is establishing itself as one of the friendliest City road races, raising money supporting the largest charity in south east Wales.
Club athletes and charity fun runners help raise vital funds to support local patients and their families.

The event is known for its fantastic atmosphere, and it could not be staged without the tremendous support of the residents and businesses of the City of Newport.

We try our utmost to minimise any disruption that may be caused.
