The challenge is open to runners of all abilities and raises thousands of pounds for charity each year, with charity partners including the Children’s Hospital, Macmillan and St Luke’s.
And it’s not just runners who are in for a great day – spectators will be able to watch from the start and finish line, as well as make the most of the festivities and find out more about the charities being supported at the Event Village.
Pubs, bars and restaurants across the city will also be open for celebrations after the race.
But the event does mean a number of roads in the city will be closed for a short period, and some diversions will be in place throughout the day, meaning it is a good idea to plan your journey ahead of time.
So when is the half marathon, what is the route and how can you get involved? This is everything you need to know.
When is Sheffield Half Marathon 2022?
This year’s event takes place on Sunday, March 27 and starts at 9.30am.
What is the route for Sheffield Half Marathon?
The race starts and finishes on Arundel Gate, with a circular route around the city, heading up Ecclesall Road towards Ringinglow and coming back towards Endcliffe Park.
It includes Hathersage Road and Knowle Lane.
A full map of the route has been published, showing drink stations, toilets and other facilities along the way.
These are available on Ecclesall Road South and Ringinglow Road.
When passing through the finish line near the Winter Gardens, runners will collect water and an energy drink, as well as a goody bag with a medal and t-shirt.
The Event Village will also be set up in the area for both participants and spectators to enjoy.
How can I register for Sheffield Half Marathon?
Entries are now open for the race on March 27 and entrants must be 17 or over on the day of the event.
Anyone who wants to take part can do so by visiting the Sheffield Half Marathon website.
General entry costs £39, with UK Athletics Club members paying £37. Both are subject to a 10 per cent processing fee.
Race numbers will be posted out to the address you register with, around 10 days prior to the event.
