Newark Half Marathon

The 4th Eden Hall Middlebeck Newark Half Marathon is a flat to undulating, fast and scenic summer race on mainly closed roads. The event on Sunday 11 August includes a fun run and entertainment for all the family. It is staged to support our Newark based charity partners. The race has a brilliant setting – historic Newark with its castle and civil war museum.

Newark Half Marathon is ideal for first time half marathoners - an excellent target race for those moving up from 10K or 10 miles.

The race also has the privilege of being the Nottinghamshire County Championship half marathon this year. In addition Newark Half sees the DB Wood Challenge which offers big incentives to the elite runners at the head of the field.

The challenge offers the first male runner to finish in under 70 minutes and the first female to finish in under 80 minutes £500 each, donated by DB Wood.

The organisers feel strongly that prizes for the half marathon should be awarded fairly with respect to gender and age category. This recognises age category ability and not simply the fastest. Age category prizes total over £1,300.

For the remainder of the expected 800 strong field the historic location, the excellent course, the big race atmosphere and the chance to be part of something special are the rewards they will run for.
