Challenge Awards IconChallenge Awards Top 10 Event 2019

It’s big, it’s brilliant and it’s back. Following a successful debut in 2018 the Hull Half Marathon returns for 2019.

And in a city with a street boasting the wonderful name of Land of Green Ginger, the event promises to spice up our 2019 season.

The event is held on the same day as the popular Asda Foundation Hull 10K to create a festival of running that brings thousands of runners on to the city’s streets.

Starting and finishing in Alfred Gelder Street, the largely flat course offers great PB potential and takes in The Deep, Humber Dock Marina, Hull City Hall and the University of Hull before heading back for the grand finish in the heart of the city centre.

Run For All are ranked #80 in the UK out of 241 organizers

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 10K in 2019

    My 2nd year of attending. The course was slightly altered due to work within the city centre, and I think it was a nicer route particularly running around Hull Minster.
    Lovely medal for completing and bag of goodies including t-shirt.
    Improvement could be made on entertainment at the end of the race, making it a longer experience and get folk to stay around longer and enjoy watching others completing their events. Local bands playing and food/drink stalls.
    Great run was had and already signed up for 2020!

    Did the 10K in 2019

    Very well organised and enjoyable event even If personally I found the course a little too twisty to really get the pace going, but have done it twice and already booked for next yrs event.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Course had way too many tight turns, also running running 1 hour 45 minute half marathon meant you joined much slower 10k runners for last 3 km which slowed you down considerably, as a result I wouldn't enter again.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    I didn’t enjoy the course, too many out and back sectors, and too many cobbles. Organisation and atmosphere were great though .
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    I did think the 2nd water station was too far away on a incredible hot and humid day. Much better positioned last year.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    First half I've done and found it hard but that was due to the weather, enjoyed it though and will definitely be doing it again next year.

    Did the 10K in 2019

    Another fantastic Run for All event. Well organised, well marshalled and well supported. The slight change in route due to the new footbridge bring built next to Hull Marina worked really well as it meant runners got to see the stunning Hull Minster. The only issue was the fact that the entries were so high they ran out of 10k t shirts. They have offered to post them out and have included a £5 discount for any further Run for All events so that was fine by me anyway. Brilliant event, yet again. I'll be back again next year.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    The course seems to be made over twisty, when their is no need for this as say they could one big loop back, instead of the numerous ones. Also their is not much support en route away from the city centre portion of the course, and even on that part of the course the support isn’t that great.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Great course for a PB, was a warm day but there were plenty of water stations and the support was great
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    Really enjoyed this as my first ever 10k. Doing again this year with a bunch of friends. Great atmosphere
