With its city centre start and finish, the Leeds Half Marathon brings excitement, colour, crowds and a great atmosphere to the heart of the country's third biggest city. A mass warm up ensures that everyone is raring to go and the race gets underway at 9.30am on The Headrow next to Victoria Gardens.
Cheering crowds line the route as runners head to the finish in Cookridge Street alongside the showpiece Millennium Square, which is a perfect venue for our event hub. Passing through the finish area you'll collect water and an energy drink to replenish and rehydrate, and your finisher's goody bag to showcase your achievement.
Along with baggage store and toilets, the square is the location for the charity village where you can learn all about the excellent work of our partner charities. There is an array of restaurants, cafes and bars in and around Millennium Square making it a great place to celebrate your achievement with family and friends.
