Of course it is safe (well apart from the fact that they are in Newcastle and Redcar!)
Just do some easy runs in the first week, and treat the second week like the week before your first race.
Perceived wisdom is to wait as many days as miles you have raced before you race/run hard again, so a fortnight is perfect after a half.
I ran a marathon on Sunday, and wouldn't really want to run another the day after tomorrow, but I've been back out there running 5 miles at faster than marathon pace for the last 2 days. Might have a pop at parkrun tomorrow and have my eye on a 10k a week on Monday.
