Park and Run

With the support of York Pullman and Elvington Airfield, we are delighted to be able to offer a dedicated Park and Run service for participants and spectators traveling to the Yorkshire Marathon Festival.

Please note that there is NO event parking at the University of York or in the immediate vicinity so, Park and Run is essential if you want to travel to the event by car. 

Regular services will run between our parking site at Elvington Airfield and the Event Village at the University of York, settling your pre-race nerves and taking the stress out of event day travel.

A spectator shuttle bus service will also run from the Event Village to the two spectator points across the marathon course including Dunnington and Stamford Bridge. 

These services include: 

  • Elvington Park and Run - Individual Ticket (Green Route)
  • Elvington Park and Run + Spectator Shuttle - Individual Ticket (Gold Route)
  • Elvington Park and Run + Spectator Shuttle - Family Ticket (Family of 4) (Gold Route)
  • Spectator Shuttle Bus (Blue Route)
  • City Centre Shuttle Bus

Please also note that road closures will be in place to facilitate both the marathon and 10-mile route and vehicle access for non-residents will be restricted. 

We kindly ask that all participants and spectators plan and book travel in advance.

*Capacity is limited for all services and we recommend marathon participants book the early slots to ensure they arrive at the start line on time.
