Yorkshire Marathon

Race Date: 18th October 2020 - Start Time: 9.30am

In 2019 we saw thousands take over the streets of York for what has been an extra special Asda Foundation Yorkshire Marathon Festival.

You did reet good and made us all proud! If you were lucky enough to be a part of today's incredible Yorkshire atmosphere, or have been keeping an eye on all the fun through our social media – why not join us and give it a go for yourself in 2020?

 The Asda Foundation Yorkshire Marathon has proved a hit from day one, quickly establishing itself as a highlight of the White Rose County's sporting year. The since the inaugural event in 2013, the marathon peaks its numbers annually, as we aim to set thousands of runners off through the beautiful streets of York.

The Yorkshire Marathon has everything you need to take away a little bit of that famous Yorkshire Spirit. Take in historic sites such as the York Minster and the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside as you take to this picturesque route. Listen out for the locals who come out to give you an “EY UP!” to cheer you along.

The Yorkshire folk aren’t the only ones making the noise. An abundance of spectators from across the world will cheer you along the route straight back along University Road to finish in all your pride and glory.

Remember: it’s tradition to "do the Y" as you cross the line! Yorkshire, Yorkshire, Yorkshire!

Take home that hard-earned medal, knowing you’ve conquered those 26.2 miles. Whether you’re topping your time or just looking to cross the finish line, the Yorkshire Marathon is the perfect experience for amateurs and athletes alike.
