Tickets MUST be booked in advance – cars can park for free and return coach transport is £7 per person. Runners will be given priority on services before 8.30am.
A specific service taking spectators from the Event Village to marathon spectator areas at Stamford Bridge and Dunnington. Tickets are £5 per person and allow holders to hop-on-hop-off at their leisure.
