Our congratulations go to Henry Boot Construction's Head of Policy & Compliance, Richard Grafton who was one of 7,000 runners taking part in the annual Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon held on Sunday 9 April 2017.

The Yorkshire Half Marathon changed its route around Sheffield in 2015 and was relocated to the city centre, being rebranded as the Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon as part of the Run for All Yorkshire Marathon series. The new route featured over 850ft of elevation gain in the first five and a half miles, including a category three climb.

"Running the Sheffield Half Marathon was a really enjoyable event, a great course with plenty of support and encouragement along the route. The unusually high April tempreature added to the challenge, I was certainly glad to see the finishing line. I'll give it a go again next year!"
