Newark parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 10/08/2019
Race Distance: 5 Km

A pleasant blustery run round Sconce and Devon Park, Newark-on-Trent. The ‘Sconce’ is the Queen’s Sconce, a well preserved Civil War earthwork fortification, and the ‘Devon’ is the River Devon which flows nearby and joins with the Trent at Newark. The run starts with a gentle drop down and climb back up past the Sconce, then follows three laps of a loop dropping down to the river, up through a section of woodland trail and around some football fields, and finishes heading back past the Sconce to the finish. There’s a cafe just next to the start/finish and even a permanent information board with the routes and details for both the 5K and junior parkruns.
