Run Newport for team CRUK!

Take part in this brand-new running experience, coursing through the iconic landmarks, picturesque medieval villages and Newport’s recently regenerated city-centre.

The single loop route, created by double Olympic marathon runner Steve Brace, will take runners past the University of South Wales, the bustling Friars Walk shopping centre, Newport Bridge, then on towards the village of Magor in Monmouthshire. Runners will get to take in the coastal wildlife at the Gwent Levels and Newport Wetlands – one of the UK’s most popular bird watching sites before sprinting to the finish along the River Usk.

It's CRUK's first year as an official charity partner on this event and we are incredibly excited to be involved! 

This is an ideal event for marathon runners looking for a new experience! Be the first on our team and make 2018 a year to remember.
