Distance: 13.1 Miles | Registration Fee: £30 | Fundraising Target: £300

The Leeds Half Marathon is Yorkshire’s biggest and possibly loudest event of its kind. 

The much-loved run often attracts more than 7,500 runners. But what makes it special is the crowds. Support for runners along the route is always phenomenal, whatever the weather. The Leeds Half attracts runners of all abilities and ages. With a fantastically vibrant atmosphere guaranteed, this run could be right up your street.

Why Child Bereavement UK?

Child Bereavement UK helps families to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies. We support children and young people (up to the age of 25) when someone important to them has died or is not expected to live, and parents and the wider family when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying. We provide training to professionals in health and social care, education, and the voluntary and corporate sectors, equipping them to provide the best possible care to bereaved families.

When you fundraise for us, you’ll receive:

    • a welcome email and fundraising pack from our events team
    • a Child Bereavement UK running vest to wear on the day with iron-on letters to personalise it
    • support from our dedicated fundraising and events team to achieve your target
    • e-newsletters updating you with news from across the charity
    • access to our online Facebook group, where other fundraisers share training and fundraising advice
