With the recent Leeds Half Marathon and next weekend’s Derby Half, the 2018 Jane Tomlinson Run For All series is starting to build up speed. The next Northern event takes places in Hull, which, with the addition of an all new half marathon, will create a festival of running for the city on Sunday 10 June.
Taking into account the success of the Asda Foundation Hull 10K, which regularly attracts upwards of 4,000 runners year upon year, Run For All’s decision to launch a half marathon event will undoubtedly prove to be a popular one.
Details show that the new half will feature an exciting city centre start and finish and a largely flat course, offering great PB potential. The route starts 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. It’s then on to the University of Hull, before returning into the city centre for the grand finish.
Entries for the Asda Foundation Half Marathon remain open: registration is available here.
