Important Information

Runner check-in and race day registration are open from 7:00 am to 8:30 am at the Clerk of the Course located in the grass in front of the Newark Community Center near the intersection of Cedar Blvd. and Chapman Dr. Upon registering or checking in, you will receive your bib, bib safety pins, and your official Newark Mile T-shirt. The race will begin and end on Cedar Blvd. at the Chapman Dr. intersection.

The Clerk of the Course will close check-ins and registration promptly at 8:30 am SHARP. Please help us maintain the Newark Days schedule by registering before race day ($5 discount from race day cost!) or before 8:00 am on race day to avoid last minute registration lines.

WARNING: Cedar and Newark Blvds. will NOT be completely closed to traffic before the beginning of the race. Race participants are advised to use sidewalks and Newark Community Park to complete warmups. Again, please keep your running off the streets before the race, so we can ensure the Newark Mile will be able to stay there for years to come! Thank you!

Course and Parking Information

Course map can be found here.

Parking in Newark Days lots will not be available as they will be blocked due to the closures of Cedar and Newark Blvds. for the Newark Mile and Newark Days Parade. Participants and spectators are advised to park on residential streets. We recommend that participants and spectators who live in the surrounding residential area walk or bike to the race.
