The Leeds Half Marathon Team Challenge, sponsored by the Technology Group has become one of West Yorkshire’s biggest running events. The run is renowned for its enthusiastic crowds that cheer on thousands as they walk, jog and run around the city sights of Leeds.
This is a race within a race that sees teams battle it out to be crowned Team Challenge Champions. The race runs alongside the main event, but rather than competing as individuals, your challenge is to work collectively to cross the line in the quickest combined time.
Our challenge has been enjoyed by teams of all varieties: so, whether you’re a group of friends, family or colleagues, it’s time to rally the troops and enter a team in this years’ event.
In addition to being team focused, the Team Challenge boasts a more premium package, with the inclusion of a few extra perks and benefits – find out more below.
Included In Your Team Entry
Team race day kit
Teams will be kitted out in their own, personalised racing t-shirts. The shirts will be branded with your team name, logo and, should you be running for a particular cause, a charity logo too. By sporting these on the day, your team will be instantly recognisable – great for boosting your exposure and promoting your cause, charity or business.
Trophies and prizes
Not only will all team members receive their finisher’s goody bag (including all sorts of treats, your finisher’s t-shirt and your race medal), but the winning teams will also be recognised and presented with their own award for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Both the fastest female and fastest male winner will also receive an award.
PR and media coverage
Teams will have the opportunity to feature in profile-raising news stories about the challenge via our media partners.
