The Sheffield Half Marathon boasts one of the most scenic routes in the UK, combining a great city centre start and finish with some of the Peak District's most spectacular views. 

Participants take the 'triple test', tackling a timed 'King of the Hill' or 'Queen of the Hill'  challenge, a 10K sprint section and the overall half marathon. 

The route starts in the heart of the city on Arundel Gate. Runners then journey along Ecclesall Road before taking a right turn up towards Ringinglow.

Then they run along country roads and on to the famous Norfolk Arms, where the route takes a left turn and offers superb views of the city of Sheffield and the Peak District.

Those views are then left behind as the course headed downhill to the outskirts of Dore, back to Ecclesall Road and on to the grand finish at the Town Hall.
