The Yorkshire Half Marathon 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.

The route starts in the heart of the city. Runners then journey along Ecclesall Road before taking a right turn up towards Ringinglow.

Then they run along country roads and on to the famous Norfolk Arms, where the route takes a left turn and offers superb views of the city of Sheffield and the Peak District.

Those views are then left behind as the course heads downhill to the outskirts of Dore, back to Ecclesall Road and on to the grand finish at the Town Hall.

We support you every step of the way.

That sponsorship target!

Don’t be over whelmed by it, you’ll make it!

As well as asking friends, family and colleagues for donations, you might need to do some extra fundraising activities to hit your target (unless you have lots of very generous friends). Who knows, you may even smash it!

When you sign up, you'll receive a fundraising pack which has loads of ideas to help you with this, it's split into two sections; covering quick fundraising ideas for busy people and larger fundraising activities such as setting up a pub quiz.  

And we’re always on the end of the phone too with support and advice.

Go for it!
