We’re delighted to announce that The Wallich are an ABP Newport Wales Marathon and 10K Official Associate Charity.

Inspired by the success of half marathons across Wales, on Sunday 29 April 2018 a special sporting event will take place in Newport; the first full Welsh marathon.

As it’s the first of its kind, The Wallich is proud to become an ABP Newport Wales Marathon and 10K Official Associate Charity.

We’re giving runners the opportunity to secure a marathon or 10K place for free, if they can fundraise to help us prevent homelessness.

The flagship marathon will host runners who can complete the epic 26.2-mile challenge.

For those who think a marathon might be a bit of a stretch, we also have some spaces for the respectable 10K race.

However, willing participants will have to be quick, as places are first come, first served.

Supporters of The Wallich have a history of excellent fundraising for sporting challenges. We’re excited to gear up our #TeamWallich cheer squad for the brave people who take on the ABP Newport Wales Marathon and 10K.

Homelessness rose across Wales in 2017 and we need the help and generosity of our supporters more than ever.
