Race Date: Sunday 12 August 2018
The Newark Half Marathon, relaunched in 2016 after a four-year hiatus, is a flat course on closed roads around historical Newark. 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.
728 participants completed the course and 2018 winner was John Hobbs of Valley Striders AC in a time of 1:13:14. First lady was Julie Warner (unattached) in a time of 1:24:14.
Five Striders were among the runners and their times are listed below. Well done all. Full results can be found here.
