Huddersfield Marathon & Half Marathon
Taking place again in 2020, the Huddersfield Marathon is no ordinary marathon, and is already on many "to-do" lists for the year! It is unique, bespoke, with the option of a half marathon - perfect for all runners! It's going to be a great way to get your Summer off to an exciting and fulfilling start. A premiership marathon for a #premiership town.
The route is certainly a bit different. With one lap for the Half Marathon runners and two for the Marathon, it's a hilly opening few miles (one or two big hills!) before a kinder run in to the finish. It's challenging, it's the toughest road marathon in the UK! And on the well marked course, with some fantastic Yorkshire views, you will be supported by a whole host of people, local running groups and charities.
