Race Information

The Leeds Half Marathon – about to enter its 31st year – is a real favourite and is the biggest half marathon in Yorkshire; and probably much further afield, too. 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. 

Not as tough as Sheffield, but still a challenge, it’s another great half to get your teeth into! With a fantastic start on The Headrow and an exhilarating finish in Millennium Square, this year’s Leeds Half takes place on Sunday 8th May.

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.”
