Here is your chance to run or walk down Main Street Newark DE without being chased by police.

For the past 12 years the Main Street Mile has been a signature event for the City of Newark.  It is unique because you get the chance to run or walk down Main Street with no cars and absolutely no traffic.  This just does not happen :-)

Nic DeCaire founded the Main Street Mile 11 years ago as a way to help fund the Newark Police K9.  Between this event and others he and his friends have put on over the years they have raised over $200,000 for the Newark Police K9 Unit.

Not only is this a great 1 Mile Race but it has an awesome after party at the DeerPark Tavern.  After you PR on this fast course stick around for some music, food, and stop by the Tito's Vodka Bloody Mary or Beer Tent for a drink.

This event is one you want to make sure is on your race calendar.

*This year, the original course will be altered due to Main Street construction.  We will start at Deer Park.  Participants will run down Main Street .5 miles then make a U-Turn and come back on the opposite side of the street.


All kids 13 and under are only $12 and includes a race shirt.  

Remember if you child goes to a Delaware elementary or high school to register under your schools team for the chance of winning the DE School Challenge.


All participants 13 and under will receive a finisher medal after they cross the finish line.
