Event information

First staged 35 years ago, 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 on Sunday 10th May 2020.

Start/Finish

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 city. A mass warm-up ensures that everyone is loose and raring to go. 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 (where our Event Hub is located).

Passing through the finish area, you'll collect water and an energy drink to replenish and rehydrate. Don’t forget to pick up your finisher's goody bag and medal to showcase your achievement.

Along with baggage store and toilets, Millennium Square is the location for the charity village where you can learn all about the wonderful work of our not-for-profit partners. There is also an array of restaurants, cafes and bars on site, making it a great place to celebrate your achievement with family and friends.
