Leeds Half Marathon 2023
The Leeds Half Marathon is one of Yorkshire’s biggest racing events.
About this event
The Leeds half marathon is a 13.1 mile route through Leeds. It’s a great way to see the sights of the city and with crowds of supporters cheering you on, how else would you want to spend a Sunday!
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 atmosphere. Crowds gather to support runners all along the route so whatever the weather, every participant will get a boost from the words of encouragement they receive.
The run also attracts people of all abilities and ages (17 and over), with a fantastically vibrant atmosphere guaranteed, this run could be right up your street.
