It is with heavy hearts that the Newark Days Committee has determined that Newark Days 2021 is being cancelled and with that the Newark Mile 4k.
We received recommendations from the local authorities that because of the rapidly increasing cases of the COVID Delta variant, it would not be prudent to host such a large event. As such, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel this year's event as we prioritize the safety of our community. Given the late timing of this, we do not intend to host a virtual celebration this year similar to 2020.
If you are already registered for this year's race, your registration will be automatically transferred to next year. If you prefer to receive a refund, please reach out and let us know.
We hope for better news in 2022. Save the date now for September 17, 2022. Please make safe choices and get yourself vaccinated!

CXC4L is proud to announce that we will be hosting the Newark Mile again this year - which is especially nice to say as we slowly return to normalcy after the COVID related shutdowns! After last year's hiatus, the race will be taking place along its traditional 2.5 mile (4km) course along the Newark Days parade route. We are pleased to be hosting the 37th consecutive running of this local Newark favorite in partnership with the Newark Days Celebration!
We are closely continuing to monitor COVID-19 and its possible impact on the Newark Mile for 2021. At this point, we expect that we will be able to have the race go off with few to no restrictions, but we will be keeping in mind any needed safety precautions that will be prudent and will announce those closer to the day of the race based on the pertinent local and national health guidelines.
There are several categories of awards given out at the Newark Mile.
The age groups are: 0 to 14, 15 to 25, 26 to 35, 36 to 45, 46 to 55, 56 to 65, and 66 & over.
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.
