Welcome to the Newark Half Marathon
2020 Postponement announcement
With deep concerns continuing to grow around the spread of COVID-19, It is with regret that The Newark Half Marathon Committee, in consultation with our sponsors and charities, have taken advice to postpone the 2020 Newark Half Marathon. It has been a hard decision to make, however, our ultimate priority is your health and well being and that of your families, our team and our community.
The good news is we have a new date which has been set for
Sunday 08th August 2021.
While we understand you may be disappointed, we value your patience at this time. In explanation, there is a lot involved with organising the race (traffic management, entries, sponsors, vendors etc) and we need to ensure that we are making the right decisions at the right time to reduce the impact to everyone, runners, sponsors and organisers alike.
We know that there will be questions from runners and others and we ask you to please bear with us as we work through this process of providing refunds, deferments, swaps, or donating to our charities, all entrants will be contacted via email regarding options.
Please look out for updates on our website and Facebook
Thankyou all for your understanding in this matter. Stay safe and we'll see you all again very soon
