The Yorkshire Marathon is one of the UK's most popular marathons, with places selling out in five consecutive years. Demand in 2018 is set to be equally high, so move fast or you may be disappointed.
The Yorkshire Marathon very quickly established itself as one of the highlights of the North's sporting year. This popular and picturesque run, with fantastic PB potential, takes participants past some of the beautiful city of York's splendid historic sites and along scenic country lanes, making it an attractive prospect for runners of all abilities.
Described by the Daily Mirror as the Number 1 Alternative to the London Marathon and by the Guardian as a course on which to smash your PB, this race has written its own place in the UK running calendar.
Achieve a coveted personal best or simply be spurred on by great support and entertainment around the route - the Yorkshire Marathon has all the ingredients to make this an unforgettable experience. To get a flavour of the marathon take a look at the video below!
If you find the idea of taking on the full 26.2 miles too daunting, why not take a look at the Yorkshire 10 Mile or the Yorkshire Marathon Corporate Relay, where teams can share the distance - but soak up all of the amazing race day atmosphere!
A huge army of volunteers also contribute to ensuring that the event is one that lives long in the memory. Their efforts help create an experience of which the whole of Yorkshire can be proud. If you'd like to volunteer at the marathon or any of our events, do get in touch for more information.
