Welcome to the Newark Half Marathon
It is with regret that The Newark Half Marathon volunteer committee, in consultation with our sponsor have made the decision not to hold our run in 2021.
Planning will commence to hold the run again Sunday 07th August 2022.
This has been an extremely hard decision to make, however, as a volunteer organising committee who rely on the support of the local town and community organisations, we feel that staging the event would not be viable in August 2021.
While we understand you may be as disappointed as we are. There is a lot involved with organising the race (traffic management, entries, sponsors, vendors etc). In the continued uncertainty and any changes to the roadmap we would be unable to financially or logistically make changes. Our event is held in open public places where it would not be possible to limit social contact or stage a ‘closed off’ event.
The committee wants to host the best possible event and showcase our community spirit while raising money/exposure to local charities and community projects.
Entrants signed up for 2020 who opted to defer to 2021 will be transferred to 2022 or can contact us at to obtain a refund from Resultsbase (minus the transaction fee).
Thank you all for your understanding in this matter. Stay safe and we'll see you all again very soon
