The Leeds Half Marathon is one of the North's leading charity road races. Enjoy a thrilling city centre start and test yourself on a challenging route through the city and its suburbs. Don’t forget to look out for the historic Kirkstall Abbey which indicates you’re almost on the home straight. Pick up the pace along the Headrow and in front of the majestic Town Hall, before turning into Cookridge Street for the grand finish onto the showpiece Millennium Square.
