Newark Half Marathon

Registration for the Newark Half Marathon is still open with a limited number of spaces.

The Eden Hall Spa Newark Half Marathon is a flat, fast and scenic summer race.  It is limited to 1,500 entrants with a fun run and entertainment for all the family in support of our charity partner Beaumond House. The race starts in the Sconce Park, skirts East Stoke, then back to the Sconce Park. The route is flat and mainly on closed roads. 

Prizes are age graded ability and not simply the fastest. The categories are as below:

There will be gift vouchers for £40 and £20 for first and second in each category.

Fun Run

This run is for all the family, young and old. You can raise money for charity if you wish.

Registration opens March 2017. Beaumond House is supporting this run and all proceeds will go to them. All finishers will receive a medal.

The run is a ‘Run England’ accredited race route of 2 kilometres around the periphery of Sconce and Devon Park. It is strictly limited to 150 runners, with marshals and spectators supporting all the way.


The Newark Half Marathon organising team are looking to recruit volunteers willing to carry out registration duties / marshalling / setting up – taking down the start and finish / water station duties both during the event and for some tasks leading up to the event.

No prior experience is needed just an interest and commitment to get involved. If you want to help register via email at
