Sheffield Half Marathon and 10k 2021: How can I get there and where can I park?
The Sheffield Half Marathon and 10K race are set to place this weekend after being postponed last year in light of the Covid pandemic.
A major event in the UK's running calendar, the Sheffield Half Marathon is South Yorkshire’s biggest event of its kind and will see thousands of runners taking part, raising money for numerous causes on Sunday, September 26.
The event, sponsored by the Asda Foundation, boasts a stunningly scenic route with views over the Peak District.
On the same day the Sheffield 10K will take place, staged in partnership with Sheffield City Council.
Here is everything you need to know about getting to the city for the races and where to park.

You can find timetables and routes on the National Rail website for train travel, and the Supertram website if you are planning to attend via tram.
