Run For All
Run For All is Not for Profit. An entry to a Run For All event helps support great causes, part of the legacy of late amateur athlete and fundraiser Jane Tomlinson CBE. From Fun Run to Marathon, we welcome all ages and abilities - we really are For All. Run For All is part of the lasting legacy of the late amateur athlete and fundraiser Jane Tomlinson CBE. Jane, from Leeds, made headlines around the world by taking part in a series of incredible endurance events - despite being diagnosed with an incurable cancer. The mum-of-three defied her devastating diagnosis to complete challenge after challenge – from marathons and triathlons to ironman contests and cross-Europe cycle rides. Her final – and toughest – endeavour was a 4,200-mile bike ride across the breadth of America in 2006. It was a gruelling challenge that even an athlete in the peak of fitness would find daunting, let alone someone fighting cancer. As ever, though, Jane battled on to somehow realise her goal. Every year tens of thousands of people take part in our popular events – running for charity, for a personal challenge or just for fun.

Did the Half Marathon in 2019
The 'holding' zones prior to the start was very odd, and took something away from the actual starting of the race. For the medal engraving at the end, i asked about six marshalls, three didnt know, two pointed me in the wrong direction. Once I got there, the guys in the tent didnt have your time. Why? Lots of room for improvement.

A fantastic organised event, not my favourite of courses but well supported all the same. Great Pacers helping you through
Did the Half Marathon in 2019
A well organised race. Great atmosphere and fantastic support along the way. There are a variety of bands along the route very carnival like. There are a couple of large hills but luckily they are at the beginning of the race the rest of the course is relatively flat. Would highly recommend.

Really enjoyed it, the course was challenging but very enjoyable. The route was well supported throughout and the finish was amazing
Did the Half Marathon in 2019
Much better organised than the Sheffield Half. Course was quite narrow in places where it was limited to 1 Lane of a dual caridgeway and the other lane was still live but reduced to 30mph
Did the Half Marathon in 2019
A well organised and challenging Half Marathon. The course starts in the city centre then goes out and around it before coming back in to the finish. The course has plenty of uphill and downhill and has great support all the way around.
