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

Join us for one of the City of Newark's signature events on Main Street.  

The run/walk is incredible 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 12 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.
