Excitement is building ahead of this year's Eden Hall Middlebeck Newark Half Marathon on Sunday 12 August. The event, set in the historic Nottinghamshire town with its castle and civil war museum, is a fast, flat and scenic summer race with a fun run and entertainment for all the family.
The race starts and finishes at the Sconce Park, scene of Civil War battles and passes the Ice Age Journey dig where our ancestors settled over 13,000 years ago. The route then skirts East Stoke, site of the bloody battle that ended the Wars of the Roses, and continues through Elston, birth place of the Darwin family and then back to the Sconce Park.
New for 2018 is the DB Wood Challenge where the first male runner to finish in under 66 minutes and the first female runner to finish in under 76 minutes will receive £500 each, donated by DB Wood. The prize fund recognises age graded ability equally and totals over £1,300.
So come along and run with us, have fun with us and raise money for our charity partners but please don't delay as places are limited to 1,500 entrants.
