Leeds Half Marathon

The 13.1 mile run starts on the Headrow and finishes in Cookridge Street, to the side of landmark Millennium Square.

With an electric start and finish, the Half Marathon in Yorkshire is a fantastic challenge and a step-up from the 10K series for those who want to push themselves a little further.
