Hull Half Creates Festival Of Running

Start of the Hull 10K

Run For All has expanded its portfolio with the exciting addition of a Hull Half Marathon, which has been set for Sunday 10 June. The half will supplement the already established Hull 10K and will create, with the summer date in mind, a festival of running for the city. 

Considering the success of the Asda Foundation Hull 10K, which attracted over 4000 runners this year, the inclusion of a 13.1 mile option looks certain to be a popular move from the Run For All team.

Details of the course have already been revealed: the half marathon route will start and finishes in the same place as the 10K, in Alfred Gelder Street. It takes in the waterfront and marina and then travels north of the city, along Princes Avenue, skirting Pearson Park, Newland Avenue and Cottingham Road. 

On the launch of the new event, Tristan Batley-Kyle, course director at Run For All, commented: “Whether people opt for the 10K, the half marathon or the corporate challenge, it promises to be a great day for runners of all abilities.

“We already organise two events on one day – the Yorkshire Marathon and the Yorkshire 10 Mile which take place in October – and it’s an offer that has proved very successful. Many runners tell us they want new challenges and that is what we want to deliver.”

Entries for Hull Half Marathon are now open and priced at £25. Further information is available here.
