Fabulous Local Events this August
This August, Newark welcomes 2 huge sporting events to the area.
The Newark Half Marathon starts at 10am on Sunday 13th. 1500 runners will be making their way from Newark Sconce Park through Farndon and passing Eden’s door between 10.30-11.30 before heading through the village of Elston and back towards Newark.
Road closures will be in place during the Marathon period so please check your route before travelling on Sunday.
We’re very excited to once again be the major sponsor for this event. Our Gym & Leisure Manager Suzie will be at Sconce Park to get runners ready for the race with a warm up.
We have a team running again this year and we know that some of our loyal members are also taking part – good luck to everyone. We’ll be at Eden manning a water station. We’ll send you onto the next leg of your run with a huge cheer.
Sunday 20th August is another busy day in the local and national sporting calendar. From 11am, Southwell Racecourse opens its gates for Ladies Day. We’ll be there meeting and greeting race-goers, offering a little pampering, as well as presenting prizes for Best Dressed, Best Hat and Best Shoes, not to mention sponsoring the first race of the day. With an expected crowd of over 8,000 people, it’s a great day out – it’s not too late you get yourself a ticket!
“It’s a fabulous event that we’re very proud to sponsor” says Managing Director Nerys Chell. “Ladies Day has always been lucky with the weather so we’re keeping our fingers crossed for another sunny day and we look forward to seeing everyone there”.
If you’re not running or into racing, why not join us for a relaxing day at the spa.
