Video - The 2012 Sheffield Half Marathon, Sunday 27th May 2012.

While in Sheffield over the weekend the Sheffield Half Marathon took place on the Sunday morning, here is my video of some of the runners. Well done to all who took part in this, it was absolutely roasting hot. Too hot to even watch it let alone be a runner.

5792 runners took part in this Half Marathon. I did not film every runner!

John Franklin was the first man across the finish lane of Sheffield's Half Marathon today with a time of 1:10:31
Steve Davis, who was running for the Paul Hunter Foundation, made it across the finish line in 2 hours 42 minutes.

Were YOU the mankini man (No 5645) ! or Mickey Mouse?, if so leave a comment

I captured these runners about 10.40am on Sunday 27th May 2012.
The first set of runners is on Pinstone Street (in front of Sheffield town hall)
The second lot of runners are on Barker's Pool (in front of Sheffield City Hall) and the final set of runners were on Division Street.

The Sheffield Half Marathon incorporates the Yorkshire Half Marathon Championships and the South Yorkshire Half Marathon Championships.
The Sheffield Half Marathon starts and finishes in the Don Valley Stadium, the Sheffield Half Marathon leads runners though and around Sheffield's city centre.

Hope you like my little video.

    1. Hi Heather, I did not know about the beer festival as I don't live near there. There used to be a Willington Website not sure if its still online. There is one for Mercia Marina.
