Run the Newport Marathon in aid of Newport Mind
Physical activity is proven to help improve low mood and other mental health problems. So why not take up an active challenge and fundraise for Newport Mind at the same time?
Please note that registration for the Newport Marathon and 10K closes at midnight on Sunday 14 April - therefore, any applications we receive for a charity place after Monday 8 April are subject to availability of places. Thank you for your understanding.

TrekFest Beacons 2019 (Saturday 6 July 2019)
Discover the stunning Brecon Beacons and raise money for Newport Mind at the same time!
The Brecon Beacons National Park is full of stunning scenery, rolling countryside and impressive mountains. This incredible mountain range runs through the centre of South Wales and is a training ground of the SAS – it will test you to your limits with challenging climbs and steep descents. Both the 25km and 50km routes venture to the summit of Pen Y Fan – the highest peak in southern Britain.
