The DB Wood Newark Half Marathon 2020

The DB Wood Newark Half Marathon 2020

Information and registration

9 August 2020

The DB Wood Newark Half Marathon continues as a new, faster and more scenic summer race following its re-launch in 2016. It attracts over 1000 entrants with a fun run and entertainment for all the family.

The setting is historic Newark with its castle and civil war museum. The race starts in the Sconce and Devon Park, site of civil war battles, passes the Ice Age Journey dig, where our ancestors settled over 13,000 years ago, skirts East Stoke, site of the bloodiest civil battle through Elston, birth place of the Darwin family, then back to the Sconce and Devon Park.

The route is flat and fast and mainly on closed roads. A UKA Certificate of Course Accuracy has been issued for the event and the UKA Race Licence is 2020-39711.


Entry for the 2020 race will be £25 with a £2 discount available to British Athletics/UKAA members

Please note that during the registration process your British Athletics/UKA membership will be checked and if valid the appropriate discount will be applied.

An administration fee of 5% will be applied to each order by our online entry system partner, Results Base.

The 2k Fun Run entry is £5 with no booking fee. It is open to all ages but anyone under 11years MUST be accompanied by an adult.


All entries that are received prior to the end of June (30/06/20 at 23:59) will receive their bibs in the post and will have guaranteed t-shirt sizes, any entries after this date will be collection on the day of the event or at other stated dates (TBC) in the run-up to the event. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that you receive the preferred t-shirt size if entries are made after the postal entry cut-off date.


The first male runner to finish in under 70 minutes and the first female to finish in under 80 minutes will receive £500 each.

The organisers feel strongly that prizes for the half marathon should be awarded fully recognising gender and age category. Prize details to be announced...
