Sheffield Half Marathon 2015 road closures

Recommended Posts

But using a subway isn`t good in a race; that`s why it was altered a few years back.

I'd assumed it wasn't a good route, otherwise they would probably have used it now. I ran the marathon in the mid 80s, and presumably must have used an underpass in that area at that time, but I don't actually remember doing so.

 

(As an aside, does anyone have any links to any of the Sheffield Marathon and half marathon routes from the mid 80s, as I'd like some help in remembering the exact routes)

Believe me, when you're a slow plodder like me, having people cheering you on is a massive help!!

I think it was a good move handing it over to the Tomlinson organisation. They have a good track record of running events, and although the new route, with the climb up to the Norfolk Arms, is going to be tough, at least it marks it out as being a completely different event from last years fiasco! Shame they didn't keep Sheffield in the name, but all the runners I know are still calling it the Sheffield Half! Good luck to everyone running.

Interesting difference to this years race; in previous years my friends who have run it have said that town and Ecclesall Road were great, but that the run from and back towards Don Valley was so devoid of spectators that it really became a slog - that boost from cheering crowds can count for a lot!
