The Commonwealth marathon bronze medallist ran 69 minutes 28 seconds in her final race before the marathon.
"I felt really strong," said Yelling. "I thought the course record was a realistic target so I just set off and the crowd support was awesome."
Yelling also rose to fourth on the all-time UK half-marathon rankings.
