Organiser's Description

The Leeds Half Marathon starts in The Headrow alongside Victoria Gardens, heads out of the city centre, takes in a section of the Ring Road and returns via Abbey Road and Kirkstall Road before finishing in Cookridge Street alongside Millennium Square.

The Leeds Half Marathon is one of Yorkshire’s biggest event of its kind. Jane herself was proud to start the race back in 2003.

The much-loved run raises hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity every year and often attracts thousands of runners.

But what makes it special is the crowds. Support for runners along the route is always phenomenal, whatever the weather. Every participant will get a boost from the words of encouragement they receive.

Like all our events, the Leeds Half attracts runners of all abilities and ages. With a fantastically vibrant atmosphere guaranteed, this run could be right up your street.

So get yourself to Leeds and let's see you on the start line.

Very well organised but a really hard route. The 2019 Leeds Half was my first Half Marathon Race. I have to say, it was incredibly well organised, with the start waves and pens/warm ups being very clearly announced. My only negative would be the finish line being so far away from the Town Hall steps! Having slogged up the incline to get into town, to then find you have to keep going past the crowds to turn left up to City Hall is just so much harder, especially with it being up hill, even such a small one!! If I’m honest, a slight adjustment to the route somewhere to accommodate finishin outside the steps would, psychologically have made all the difference for me. I had nothing left to give once I got up that last hill and a spring finish was completely out of the question. The beer at the end was very much needed!!!
