Sheffield Half Marathon route

The Asda Foundation Sheffield Half Marathon’s demanding terrain will prove to be hard work, well worth the effort. The course rewards you with spectacular views of the Peak District and various City landmarks.

Starting on Arundel Gate, in the heart of the City Centre, runners are instantly hit with the euphoria that surrounds this fantastic event. Runners then travel down the much loved ‘Eccy’ Road and take in its selection of bars, restaurants and independent shops.

From there on, they are treated to picturesque views of the Peak District, passing Encliffe Park and Sheffield Tigers Rugby Club. Those views are then left behind as the course heads downhill to the outskirts of Dore and back to ‘Eccy’ Road. Eventually reentering the City Centre, runners finish in front of the Town Hall and an adoring crowd!

Naturally, to take advantage of the best of the Peak District’s incredible views, there will be an uphill ‘King of the Hill’ section.

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

    It's my favourite as the support for running in Sheffield is fantastic! Run For All events are so organised too!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    A great event supported all the way round by locals, the events team made it a great experience that makes you want to return again. Hills yes but definitely worth a go on a picturesque course.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Amazing experience, crowds were so encouraging! Amazing feeling, would absolutely love to do it again
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Well organised and a good route. If I can give any advice it would be check your kit the night before so you are already in the morning and dont skip breakfast.. Dont start off too fast you can pick the pace up as you go and most of all ENJOY
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2016

    A really fantastic yet challenging half marathon. The hill climb will test even the very best runner, but the views from the tops are stunning. I thought the Sheffield crowd were the best Id ever experienced in any of the runs Ive completed. This is a must for all runners. Ill be running it again in 2020.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Well organised race, support was amazing and definitely kept me going. Hills were tough but once you hit 5 miles its mostly downhill which I absolutely loved! Will be back next year!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    I enjoyed it and found the atmosphere amazing with lots of local support all the way round the course.
