Race Information

The Leeds Half Marathon – which this year celebrates its 33rd anniversary - is firmly established as one of the highlights on Leeds’s sporting calendar thanks to its challenging course, enthusiastic crowds and fantastic atmosphere.

Around 9,000 signed up for year’s event raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for charities and good causes across Yorkshire and beyond. The 2018 event takes place on Sunday May 13th at 9.30am.

The route 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 event is staged in partnership with Leeds City Council and forms part of the Plusnet Marathon Series that also features the Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield and the Yorkshire Marathon.
