A major event in the UK's running calendar, the Sheffield Half Marathon attracts thousands of runners of all abilities and spectators to the city's streets and raises many thousands of pounds for good causes.

With a city centre start and finish, the event boasts a super scenic route with stunning views of the Peak District for those who conquer the climb to Ringinglow.

And the race even incorporates a 'triple test' giving entrants a chance to be crowned 'King of the Hill' or 'Queen of the Hill' in a timed hill climb, triumph in a 10K largely-downhill sprint section and cross the finish line first to lift the Sheffield Half Marathon title.

Over 90 years ago, I was born in Barnsley, Yorkshire, to a working-class family. Poverty was as natural to us as great wealth and power were to the aristocracy of that age. Like his father and grandfather before him, my dad, Albert, eked out a meagre existence as a miner, working hundreds of feet below the surface, smashing the rock face with a pickaxe, searching for coal how times have changed

Gargrave is a beautiful village nestling in the Yorkshire Dales about 4 miles from the lovely market town of Skipton. It boasts, among many things, a fish and chip shop, a couple of very nice cafes, a couple of even nicer pubs, lots of accommodation and a Co-Op, oh and a Premier Inn for anyone wishing to stay.
Gargrave straddles the River Aire, and it has the Leeds and Liverpool Canal running through it. Gargrave is a popular tourist destination and is known as the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. It is also part of the Pennine Way.
The course is an out and back course, firstly going towards Skipton and then back to Gargrave and out towards the Dales and back (dependant on your distance). Underfoot is made up of some towpath but it is mainly grass and it is traily but very picturesque.

A wonderful event in the beautiful grounds of Thoresby Hall in North Nottinghamshire. Choose from 5k, 10k, half or full marathon, or 60k ultra running over old military roads, cleared tracks through ancient woodland and grassed paths around the Estate. The race takes you into Nottinghamshire's National Nature Reserve, through private areas that were once part of the 10,000 acre Royal Forest of Sherwood, where the woodland is dominated by native oak trees. The route also includes a few hills to offer a small challenge in this scenic countryside. The Longhorn cattle of Thoresby Estate roam freely, and although they're a very docile breed, they will be tucked away during our race!
