If you’re looking to achieve your company’s fundraising goals, or simply to enjoy a bit of healthy competition, then this is the event for you.
Alternatively, if you’ve always wanted to run a marathon but weren’t sure you could complete the distance alone, then this might be the answer.
Get your marathon medal by joining five of your friends or colleagues for the Yorkshire Marathon Relay. The relay sees teams of six take on the beautiful and ancient streets of York in a battle to claim the bragging rights of being the fastest team in the race.
It's all about teamwork. Whether you’re on the final leg of 3 miles or the 2nd of 6 miles, together you WILL complete a marathon.
Open to teams from all backgrounds, the marathon relay is a wonderful way of networking, boosting morale, promoting teamwork or just rewarding yourselves with a great day out.
Distances within the relay vary, making the run both accessible and fun for runners of all abilities.
There are prizes in the following relay team categories:
- Mixed (must include at least three female runners)
- Female (all six runners must be female)
Included In Your Team Entry
Team race day kit
Teams will be kitted out in their own, personalised racing t-shirts. The shirts will be branded with your team name, logo and, should you be running for a particular cause, a charity logo too. By sporting these on the day, your team will be instantly recognisable – great for boosting your exposure and promoting your cause, charity or business.
Race day hospitality
A dedicated VIP corporate hospitality area is provided for all team members at the University’s Roger Kirk Centre. This is the perfect place for teams to gather, take advantage of free refreshments, and enjoy a stress-free build-up to the race.
Your package also includes a team photo. Once we’ve captured your team’s pre-race enthusiasm, we’ll print, frame and post out the photo to you – making for a great souvenir of your day.
Trophies and prizes
The winning teams from each of our three team categories will each be recognised and presented with their own award for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishes.
PR and media coverage
Teams will have the opportunity to feature in profile-raising news stories about the challenge via the event’s media partners.

Complimentary Park & Run service from the official event car park at Elvington Airfield for all team members.

Team members will receive a finisher's bag containing your all-important medal and post-race snacks.
