Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All has entered into a partnership with Sheffield City Council to organise the all-new Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield on Sunday 12th April.
Plans for the new race, expected to attract thousands of runners to the region, were unveiled today at the city’s Peace Gardens.
Run For All is part of the lasting legacy of the late Jane Tomlinson CBE who raised £1.85m for charity through a series of endurance challenges, despite being diagnosed with incurable cancer.
The not-for-profit organisation already stages a series of hugely-popular road racing events including The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon, the Leeds Half Marathon and 10K events in Leeds, York, Hull and Burnley. Next year it will also organise the Lincoln 10K.
Run For All’s Mike Tomlinson said: “We are thrilled to be given the opportunity to work in partnership with Sheffield City Council on such a fantastic event.
“Sheffield is rightly known as the City of Sport. It has a fantastic sporting heritage and we are delighted to be given the opportunity to organise the first Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon.
We are confident that, with the council’s support, we can develop a half marathon of which the whole of Yorkshire can be proud.”
It’s great also that we can confirm today that Plusnet will be the headline sponsor for the event. This award winning company is already the major sponsor of our marathon event and it’s great to see them now supporting good causes through the Half Marathon.”
Councillor Isobel Bowler, the council’s cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport said: “I’m really pleased that there will be a half marathon in the city next year and we are delighted to welcome the new organisers and this new event to the city.
“It’s time for next year’s half marathon runners to start planning their training – Sheffield is an ideal city for runners with its green routes and proximity to the Peak District with wonderful routes that are just ideal for first-time runners to discover
Having a local race to train for is very motivating and I hope today’s launch will encourage people to get running.”
Andy Baker, CEO of Plusnet, the half marathon’s title sponsors, said,
“It was an easy decision to get involved in this event which will take place in our home city. We have been proud to work with Run For All for a number of years now and know they will deliver a great event in Sheffield.”
Would-be entrants are now invited to register at http://www.runforall.com to be the first to find out when the event opens for entries in the near future.
The route of the new Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield will start and finish in the city centre and take in some of Sheffield’s landmark sites.
Runners can take part in the new event for fun, for a personal challenge or to raise funds for a charity of their choice.
Each year Run for All events raise huge sums for a wide range of charities. The Leeds 10K alone has raised over £2.5m since its launch in 2007 while The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon raised up to £2m in its very first year.
It is hoped that The Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield will also prove to be a major fundraising boost for good causes across the region.
