A sell-out every year since its launch in 2013, the Yorkshire Marathon is one of the UK’s most popular marathons and it’s easy to see why.

A picturesque course taking in the splendour of historic York and surrounding countryside, great pb potential, exuberant crowds, friendly marshals and an eye-catching finisher’s medal all add up to a fantastic event for runners of all abilities.

26.2 miles a bit too far? Then check out the Yorkshire 10 Mile or take a look at the Yorkshire Marathon Corporate Relay – two outstanding events offering the opportunity to soak up that special race day atmosphere.

If you want to get involved without running, an army of volunteers is needed to create an event experience of which the whole of Yorkshire can be proud.

Previous elites to take on the 26.2-mile course include Paralympic gold medalist Hannah Cockcroft and Kenyan born Edwin Korir who competed for U.S.A. at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Korir remains the course record holder with a time of 2 hours 13 minutes and 31 seconds.

2018’s marathon enjoyed highlights including emotional scenes at the finish with Sean Coxhead and his Good Gym team, an ultramarathon qualification for a 73-year-old veteran and a marriage proposal – she said yes. What will 2019 bring us?

What our runners said

“Definitely worth a go.” Kate Wozniak

“A Run For All event so it’s well organised and what you would expect from an RFA event.” Tracy L

“Very well organised race. Running past the minster, through York city centre and out in the Yorkshire countryside – what’s not to like.” Chris Barnes

“It’s a great route with fantastic crowds.” Steve Irving

“The pacers were great to run with and the finish line reception was something else.” Russell Baughan.
