Newark AC organises the Gordon Whelbourn Week (annually in June) and the Dave Lewis Challenge (annually in October) – two very popular local sporting events. Until 2012 the Club also organised the Newark Half Marathon, however due to ever-increasing traffic management costs, this event had to cease. This hugely popular event is making a comeback in 2016 (organised by a number of running clubs in the Newark area) so watch this space.
