Newport Marathon

31st March 2019

Challenge yourself and do something amazing for Hospice of the Valleys

After the success of the inaugural Newport Wales Marathon 2018, it returns to the running calendar on Sunday 5th May 2019. And you could be there!
The course boasts a flat, scenic route taking in iconic landmarks, coastal wildlife, picturesque medial villages and the recently regenerated city-centre. Perfect for first timers or those wishing to set a personal best.

The Hospice is delighted to announce we have 10 charity spaces available for Newport Wales Marathon 2019 and we would love to have you join our team. Help us by fundraising to continue to provide the exceptional care and support to patients and their families who need it most in Blaenau Gwent.  In return for a free space we ask that you aim to reach £300 in sponsorship and of course you don’t have to stop there! We will support you every step of the way with your fundraising.  Please get in touch on the details below to claim your charity space.

Reasons to do it…

There are many reasons to run the Newport Wales Marathon for Hospice of the Valleys – whether it’s in memory of a loved one, because you, a family or friend has received support from the Hospice, to push and challenge yourself or simply because you need somewhere to wear your costume…

Knowing your run has helped others, gives a huge boost to the satisfaction you’ll feel on finishing the race. You’ll also be more highly motivated during your training and the race itself.

The minimum age for our charity place is 18 years old on the event day!
