Entries for the 2018 Sheffield Half Marathon are now open! Click here to enter. 

A major event in the UK's running calendar, the Sheffield Half Marathon 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 Sheffield Half Marathon 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. Details for the 2018 event coming soon. 

A huge army of volunteers also contribute to ensuring that the event would live long in memory. Their efforts helped create an experience of which the whole of Yorkshire can be proud.
