Route:  The 13.1 mile route will start at Newport’s riverfront and take runners past iconic landmarks and coastal wildlife. This inaugural marathon is already boasting to be one of the UK’s flattest! The website says “The single loop route will take runners past the University of South Wales and the bustling Friars Walk shopping centre before heading over the Newport Bridge, through the east of the city and into its rural areas, then on towards Magor.” To see the full route, click here.

When taking part in this challenge, we’d love for you to raise some money for us too. We can give you help and support along the way, provide sponsor forms and help you to set up a Justgiving or Virgin Money Giving page.

This year, we need to raise over £1.3m to run the Centre and provide ongoing specialist Bobath therapy to over 650 children in Wales who have cerebral palsy, so you can see why your support is so valuable to us. For more, information please contact us.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Our event is being held in order to raise vital money needed by Bobath Children’s Therapy Centre Wales to help more children who have cerebral palsy. The charity supports children and their families, helping them to have a better quality of life.
