Once again, Admiral will be supporting the Half Marathon and have a group of colleagues running at the event.

Rhian Langham, Head of People Services at Admiral said “We’re so happy to be supporting The Admiral City of Newport Half Marathon for the 9th consecutive year. It’s a fantastic event for the city of Newport, the participants, and St David’s Hospice Care – a very worthy cause. After a challenging couple of years, it’s fantastic to see events happening in our local communities again, good luck to all taking part!”

St David’s Hospice Care CEO Emma Saysell added, “We were overwhelmed by the positive support of runners in the 2021 Virtual Half Marathon but are so pleased to be welcoming back all the runners in person this year.  I look forward to seeing the streets of Newport filled with all the keen athletes! Our gratitude also goes out to Admiral for once again supporting The Admiral City of Newport Half Marathon, Admiral really do help us to make the event the success it is and we couldn’t do it without them. Good luck to the Admiral team of runners and every single person taking part”.

The Admiral City of Newport Half Marathon takes place on March 6 2022. The route follows roads through the city centre before heading out to Caerleon where it picks up the Cycle paths. On the return to the centre, the runners follow the paths along the river Usk, finishing near the University Campus building.
