Pontefract Half Marathon

The historic, market town is holding it's first running event since the 80's and Ridings FM are proud to be supporting this event. Ridings FM will be there on the day setting the runners off and welcoming them back with music on stage.

Taking place on Sunday 1st October 2017, this race is expected to attract hundreds of running enthusiasts and supportive spectators alike. Starting and finishing in Pontefract Town Centre, this is a fair course which runners of all levels will find both challenging and rewarding in equal measure and the route guarantees some wonderful scenic views as the race progresses into the surrounding countryside. Hopefully this fantastic new route will be part of your running events calendar for many years to come! 
Why not bring the whole family along to enjoy a great day out in this lovely, little town.
