The Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon Sheffield 2016

Sheffield Half Marathon 2016

The Plusnet Yorkshire Half (The Sheffield Half) is definitely one of the toughest in the country. However, with the sublime views from Ringinglow Road and Sheephill Road it must also be one of the prettiest, especially on a gloriously still sunny morning! It was great to see 18 Taylored Running Group members out in force and the level of support along the route was amazing, especially at the Norfolk Arms, throughout Dore and along Ecclesall Road. Thank you to all who supported us.
