Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon – Sheffield

Take part in this picturesque and challenging half marathon

Combining a great city centre start and finishing with some of the Peak District’s most spectacular views, runners will also take on the  ‘triple test’, tackling a timed ‘King of the Hill’ or ‘Queen of the Hill’  challenge, a 10K sprint section and the overall half marathon.

The 13.1 mile route starts in the heart of the city before running along country roads and into the hills where you can enjoy superb views of the city of Sheffield and the Peak District.

Those views are then left behind as the course heads downhill and on to the grand finish at Sheffield’s Town Hall.
