Newark Half Marathon announcement made by The Newark Half Marathon Committee:
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 wellbeing 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, 8 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 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.

Saturday 28 March, 8.30pm
Earth Hour is the moment millions of people come together to celebrate our natural world. On Saturday 28 March at 8.30pm the lights will go out on the world’s most famous landmarks and in homes and businesses across the world.
This international event started by the World Wildlife Fund helps raise awareness of the need to think green and protect the world’s natural biodiversity.
In light of our climate emergency declaration members of council staff will be switching off on Saturday 28 March.
The best place to find excellent food is at a farmer’s market. This is where growers, bakers and all kinds of food and drink makers sell their produce direct to you.
And the good news is the NEW Newark Farmer’s Market is coming to the market place on the first Saturday of each month.
Visit the avenues outside the Town Hall between 9.30am and 3.30pm for the best seasonal produce that the region has to offer.
Products on offer will include locally sourced meats, sausages and bacons, award winning pastries and pies, renowned cheeses from Cropwell Bishop Creamery and Lincolnshire Poacher, delicious brownies and confectionary, international food and specialist coffees.
NOTE: Parkrun events will be cancelled until further notice.
Everyone is welcome on this free to enter 5k timed run.
There is a friendly atmosphere and loads of support so join us at your local parkrun Saturdays at 9am.
We have some brilliant parkrun venues in or around the district including Newark, Clumber Park and Sherwood Pines.
If you're unsure due to weather conditions or other circumstances, please check with the tourist information centre before attending an event that it has not been cancelled. We try and keep our events lists as up to date as possible but events can be cancelled at the last minute.
