Race Information

The Plusnet Leeds Half Marathon is one of the highlights of Leeds' sporting calendar and as Yorkshire's biggest hospice run has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for local and national charities. 

The streets of Leeds come awash with colour as huge crowds turn out to cheer on thousands of runners taking part in support of a host of worthy causes. Last year's event raised a record £150,000 for its partner charities, firmly cementing its reputation as one of the North's leading charity road races.

A huge army of volunteers also contribute to ensuring that the event is one that lives long in the memory. Their efforts help create an experience of which the whole of Yorkshire can be proud.

Along with the other events, the half marathon stands as part of the lasting legacy of the late fundraiser and campaigner Jane Tomlinson who raised almost £2m for charity by tackling a series of epic challenges, including cycling over 4,000 miles across America, despite being diagnosed with incurable cancer.   

 

My Journey...
John Johnson

John, 84, from Garforth, Leeds, was the oldest competitor in the Leeds Half Marathon in 2013. John is a veteran of some 44 marathons and has run the Leeds Half about 14 times. He took up running when he was 53 after he was diagnosed with throat cancer. Three decades on, he’s still going and has no plans to quit yet. He finished the 2013 Leeds Half Marathon in 2hrs 17mins 17secs and said: “It was brilliant. I’m quite pleased with that.”
