The Newark Half Marathon is back as a new, faster and more scenic summer race following its re-launch in 2016. It is limited to 1,500 entrants with a fun run and entertainment for all the family.
The setting is historic Newark with its castle and civil war museum. The race starts in the Sconce and Devon Park, site of civil war battles, passes the Ice Age Journey dig, where our ancestors settled over 13,000 years ago, skirts East Stoke, site of the bloodiest civil battle through Elston, birth place of the Darwin family and where our main sponsor Eden Hall is situated, then back to the Sconce and Devon Park.
The route is flat and fast and mainly on closed roads.
Entry for the 2017 race will be £25 with a £2 discount available to British Athletics/UKAA members
Please note that during the registration process your British Athletics/UKA membership will be checked and if valid the appropriate discount will be applied.
A booking fee of £1 per entrant will be added together with a small per-order charge to cover the cost of processing your debit or credit card.
The 2k Fun Run entry is £5 with no booking fee but the card processing fee will apply. It is open to all ages but anyone under 11years MUST be accompanied by an adult.
The organisers feel strongly that prizes for the half marathon should be awarded equally with respect to gender and age category. This recognises age graded ability and not simply the fastest.
Women: 65+. 55+, 45+, 35+, senior.
Men: 70+, 60+, 50+, 40+, senior.
Gift vouchers for £40 and £20 for first and second in each category respectively will be awarded. Presentations will take place as soon as possible after the finish.
