Fancy setting yourself a challenge? Why not run a half marathon and raise money for our work with families raising disabled children...

A major event in the UK’s running calendar, taking place on Sunday 10 April, the Plusnet Yorkshire 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’ in a timed hill climb, triumph in a 10K largely-downhill sprint section, and cross the finish line first to lift the title.
