Leeds Half Marathon

The Leeds Half Marathon is one of the highlights of their sporting calendar. It’s Yorkshire’s biggest hospice run and has raised thousands of pounds for local and national charities. You know how I like to run for charity!

Huge crowds turn out to cheer on thousands of runners taking part in support of a host of worthy causes. Last year’s event raised a record £150,000 for its partner charities, amazing! Firmly cementing its reputation as one of the North’s leading charity road races.

This sporting event takes place on Sunday the 10th of May 2015. Please click here if you’d like more information to enter.

Accommodation

If you want to make a short break of it, suitable accommodation is essential. We recommend the Crowne Plaza Leeds as it enjoys an excellent location in the heart of Leeds City Centre. They are also just a 10 minute walk from Leeds Train and Bus Station.

Start/Finish

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.

The race gets underway at half nine in 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.

So what are you waiting for? Go enter and get running!

About Paul Stainthorpe

Running has been part of my life since 2011. While growing up I hated running and would do anything to avoid it at school. Give me a ball and a racket any day. It’s funny how some things change. I run for good. In 2012 I ran the 12 Days of Christmas for the Percy Hedley Foundation. In 2013 I attempted (with friend Lee Nyland), the 12 parkruns of Christmas for the Tiny Lives Trust.
