Event information

The Leeds Half Marathon is Yorkshire’s biggest and probably loudest event of its kind. Jane herself was proud to start the race back in 2003.

The much-loved run raises hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity every year and often attracts more than 7,500 runners.

But what makes it special is the crowds. Support for runners along the route is always phenomenal, whatever the weather. Every participant will get a boost from the words of encouragement they receive.

Like all our events, the Leeds Half attracts runners of all abilities and ages. With a fantastically vibrant atmosphere guaranteed, this run could be right up your street.

So get yourself to Leeds and let's see you on the start line.
