Yorkshire Marathon in Lancashire? No Chance!

Pipe down everyone, of course the Yorkshire Marathon is staying in God's county.

Amid munching on all those Easter eggs did you spot our April Fools’ Day spoof story about The Yorkshire Marathon moving over the border to Lancashire in 2019?

The event is, of course, going nowhere. Boasting a fantastic atmosphere and a course that takes in the historic heart of York, pretty villages and country lanes, the marathon has established a reputation as one of the highlights on the county’s sporting calendar.

It’s staying in God’s Own Country – sorry Lancashire. But do keep your eyes peeled Lancashire, a new Run For All event could be heading your way!

However, for now, we just have an array of fantastic Yorkshire challenges! So take your pic!
