NewRun 2020 - CANCELLED

Hi Racers
It is with regret that we inform you that we must cancel the event for 2020. After proposing various amendments to the event format in order to comply with the current COVID health orders, and after consultation with various health and other authorities, we have come to the conclusion that our event is just too large and too complex to fit within the current or expect future Health orders. We thank the City of Newcastle events team, NSW Health/Ambulance and Police for their assistance in making this decision in the interests of Public Health. 
In particular we want to thanks you, the runners, for your patience in these difficult times. We also would like to thank our sponsors City of Newcastle, Marathon Tyres, Hunter Valley Orthodontics, Newcastle Herald and Queens Wharf Brewery for their support in these uncharted waters of a pandemic crisis. And finally a big thanks our passionate crew and the local volunteers and suppliers. Together, we are here for the long haul... and will get through this crisis.  MORE BELOW

We are currently assessing and seeking clarification as to the implications of this most recent Health recommendation to not allow participants from outside our region to participate in this event. 

We will make an announcement shortly, but in the meanwhile, if you are from outside the broader Hunter, Newcastle and Central Coast Regions, please hold off entering, until we have clarity.
