Yorkshire Half Marathon


A major event in the UK's running calendar, the Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield which in 2017 takes place on Sunday 9th April at 9.30am - attracts thousands of runners of all abilities and spectators to the city's streets and raises many thousands of pounds for good causes.

With a city centre start and finish, the event boasts a super scenic route - with stunning views of the Peak District for those who conquer the climb to Ringinglow.

And the race even incorporates a 'triple test' giving entrants a chance to be crowned 'King of the Hill' or 'Queen of the Hill' in a timed hill climb, triumph in a 10K largely-downhill sprint section and cross the finish line first to lift the Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield title.

Youngsters have the opportunity to be involved by signing up for the event's Arena Group Mini and Junior runs. The mini course covers a distance of 1.5K and is for children aged 3-8, while the 2.5K junior run is for youngsters aged 9-14. Entries for the Sheffield Mini and Junior 2017 will open soon!
