The hugely-popular Yorkshire Marathon is on the move to Lancashire.
Yorkshire Marathon set for a new direction - Lancashire.
Event organiser Run For All has announced that the 2019 marathon will be staged in the Red Rose County.
It marks the biggest change for the event since its launch in 2013. The exact location of the new-look run is still to be confirmed.
While acknowledging the switch would surprise many people, a Run For All spokesman said: “There’s no need for it to spark a new War of the Roses. The Yorkshire Marathon gets a chance to spread its wings and Lancashire gets to host a top class event – everyone’s a winner.”
The planned move is in its early stages and full details will be revealed later in the year.
