Organisers behind this Sunday's Yorkshire Half Marathon have confirmed which roads will be closed and when for the event on Sunday.

Thousands of runners will take to the streets of Sheffield this Sunday, April 9, for the Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon.

The race, organised by Jane Tomlinson's Run For All, starts at 9.30am followed by the Arena Sheffield Mini and Junior Runs from 9.50am.

However, organisers have now revealed a list of roads across the city which will be closed or have access restricted during the event "to ensure the safety of all those taking part".

The Half Marathon starts in Arundel Gate and finishes in Pinstone Street near the Town Hall.

The route takes in Ecclesall Road, Knowle Lane, Ringinglow Road, Sheephill Road, Limb Lane and Ecclesall Road South.

Event Manager Lynne Preston said: “Unfortunately, as with any event of this magnitude some road closures will be necessary to ensure the safety of the participants and spectators.

“A certain amount of disruption is inevitable and we would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. All closures will be lifted as soon as possible.”
