The Must-Do Half Marathon 

For the novice runner this fast and flat half marathon is a perfect introduction to a longer distance. For the more seasoned racer it is a genuine PB opportunity. And for those training for an autumn marathon it fits perfectly into your training schedule.

Sherburn Aero Club, New Lennerton Lane, Sherburn in Elmet, Leeds LS25 6JE

All parking will be at the Aero Club (see below).

How much?

No entry on the day. Entrants must be aged 17 years or over on the day of the race.

Medal AND technical t-shirt for all finishers!


New start line!

For 2018, the race will start on a real runway (closed to aeroplanes while we're on it, mind). So the first 2 miles are different but the next 11.1 are the same.


For the first time, all parking will be at the Aero Club and the race itself will start on a real runway.  Consequently access to and from the race car park will be strictly controlled.  All vehicles must be in the car park before 09:00 (when access will close) and no vehicle will be permitted to leave before 12:00 under any circumstances. For the safety and security of all runners, spectators, volunteers and Aero Club staff there will be no exceptions to this

Our charity partner for the Vale of York Half Marathon is Sue Ryder Manorlands. Manorlands Hospice is situated in West Yorkshire on the northern edge of the village of Oxenhope. They provide incredible palliative care and complementary therapy services to support people with life-limiting conditions which can involve complex physical or psychological problems.  



When all places are sold or after 13th August 2018, whichever is the sooner, your race entry fee will not be refundable in any circumstances.  While places are still available or prior to 13th August, you may apply in writing for a refund, which will be subject to an admin charge of £2.

Transfers will only be considered upon completion of a transfer form and you must request this from admin@racebest.com. Transfers are free, but will close 10 days prior to race day; no transfer will be processed after this deadline.

There are no deferrals.
