We are really excited about this new city marathon - now that the beautiful River front path is finished, the route is mostly off road. In just four miles you will see the SDR bridge, which won awards for design, the Pedestrian Bridge, a stunning metal design spanning the river and providing access to the Newport Dragons' ground at Rodney parade. You even pass the ruins of Newport Castle. Leaving Newport, the route carries on towards the Roman Town of Caerleon, where you turn around and come back along the same pathway. Timed specifically to provide London Marathon runners with a testing 13 mile training run. It's going to be a great event..
