Dan Nash smashed Run 4 Wales’ ABP Newport Marathon record at the weekend, as he crossed the finish line in a remarkable two hours, 19 minutes and 46 seconds.
The Cardiff Athletics man powered over the finish line in his Scimitar running vest, and he wasn’t the only Scimitar-supported club runner to be crowned a winner at the event…
Lliswerry Runners’ Lizzie Dimond finished in two hours and 49 minutes to become the first woman to cross the line.
Newport offers one of the flattest race routes in Europe, which was devised by double Olympic marathon runner Steve Brace, and has allowed 70 per cent of finishers in the race’s history to claim a PB.
And that was the case for Nash, who powered through the tape to celebrate an amazing achievement.
Nash came from behind to beat 2022 winner Adam Bowden, who previously held the course record of two hours, 20 minutes and six seconds.
There were over 6000 runners at Newport at the weekend across the marathon, 10k and junior races.
