First published in News

THE St David’s Hospice City of Newport Half Marathon, which is being supported by the Argus, has already signed up more than 600 runners.

The event, which is taking place on March 3, 2013, will raise funds for the hospice, but with just 380 places left, people are being encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.

Starting and finishing at Newport International Sports Village, the race follows the Riverfront path past iconic bridges and on up to Newport Castle before heading out to Caerleon along the Cycle Pathway.

Event Ambassador Darren Campbell, Olympic Athlete and Sports Personality said: "I’m delighted and honoured to have been asked to come in right at the start and get involved in and support the City of Newport Half Marathon.

"What I am also very pleased about is that this unique event is being inaugurated and staged here in the City of Newport. I will continue to take a keen interest in the half marathon and look forward to seeing how the event develops and grows over the coming years."

The South Wales Argus is the media partner of the event. Entry is £22, and is open to all abilities. For more information email fundraising@stdavidshospicecare.org or ring 01633 851051.
