Distance: 13.1 Miles
Entry Fee: £25.00 - £37.00

Back for 2022 - under new management!

The Pontefract Half Marathon was originally set up by One Step Closer Events. Having built the size and reputation of the race over several years, One Step Closer Events has passed the management of the race over to local race organisers EvenSplits, who have been staging and timing road races, trail races and triathlons in Yorkshire since 2015. The route takes you out of Pontefract and into the beautiful countryside through Ackworth, Wentbridge and Carleton before heading back towards a final lap of the town centre before you finish on the cobbles of Market Place. To address the environmental impact of our races, we are asking you to choose whether you wish to buy a finisher's technical t-shirt and to opt in or out of the finisher's medal. If you opt out of the finisher's medal we'll donate £2 to our nominated charity partner.
