The Sheffield Half Marathon route map has been unveiled, with runners due to compete on Sunday.

The Sheffield Half Marathon is drawing near, which means participants will soon be preparing to take in the city’s many attractions while racing across the city. Known for its hilly and tough course, the 13.1-mile route however remains popular among races who return year after year.

The chip-timed event begins and ends in the city centre and features a lovely route with views of the Peak District on the ascent to Ringinglow. The race even includes a ‘triple test’, which comprises a timed hill climb, a 10K downhill sprint part, and crossing the finish line first to win the race.
