Yorkshire Half Marathon
A major event in the UK's running calendar, the Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield, which in 2017 takes place on Sunday, 9 April from 9.30am - attracts thousands of runners of all abilities and spectators to the city's streets and raises many thousands of pounds for good causes.
With a city centre start and finish, the event boasts a super-scenic route - with stunning views of the Peak District for those who conquer the climb to Ringinglow.
And the race even incorporates a "triple test" giving entrants a chance to be crowned "King of the Hill" or "Queen of the Hill" in a timed hill climb, triumph in a 10km largely downhill sprint section and cross the finish line first to lift the Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield title.
Team Depaul will be running in aid of Depaul's work in South Yorkshire: Nightstop South Yorkshire, supported accommodation for homeless young people and homelessness prevention through SAFE@LAST.
