Event information

A major event in the UK's running calendar, the Sheffield Mutual Sheffield Half Marathon is South Yorkshire’s biggest event of its kind.

Thousands of runners of all abilities will be taking part, raising many thousands of pounds for numerous great causes.

With a city centre start and finish, a huge crowd of enthusiastic supporters will cheer participants out and back. The event boasts a stunningly scenic route with majestic views of the Peak District on the climb to Ringinglow.

The race even incorporates a 'triple test' giving entrants a chance to be crowned Peaks Challenge winners in a timed  hill climb, triumph in a times 10K downhill sprint section and cross the finish line first to lift the Sheffield Half Marathon title.

A vast army of eager and hard-working volunteers also contributes to ensuring that the event lives long in the memory.

This really is an event of which the whole of Yorkshire can be proud. So don't miss it! 



Entrants must be 17 years or over on event day.

What's Included?

  • Chip timing
  • Finisher's goody bag
  • Exclusive medal
  • An option to pre-order a finisher t-shirt
  • Memories of a brilliant day!



Passing through the finish, you'll collect water and an energy drink to replenish and rehydrate, and your finisher's goody bag with a medal and t-shirt to showcase your achievement.

The event hub will be buzzing with lots of post-race facilities, including the Event Village where you can learn all about the vital work done by the event's partner charities.

The area's variety of bars, cafes and restaurants make it a great place to celebrate your achievement with family and friends.
