The Great Yorkshire Run is an annual 10K run road race held in September in Sheffield City Centre, England. It is a part of the Great Run series of events, and as such is linked with the Great North Run. It was run for the first time in 2007, and was run over a weekend, with the mini (3–8-year-olds) race at 2 km and the Junior (9–14-year-olds) race at 3 km taking place on 6 September at Don Valley Stadium, with the full 10 km Great Yorkshire Run taking place on the Sunday. It is supported by the city development company Creative Sheffield, and the regional development agency Yorkshire Forward.[1]
