The Yorkshire Marathon

Date / Time

Length 26.20 miles (42.2 km)
Description

The Yorkshire Marathon remains one of the UK's most popular marathons, with places selling out in five consecutive years. Demand in 2018 is set to be equally high. 

The Yorkshire Marathon has quickly established itself as one of the highlights of the White Rose County's sporting year. This popular and picturesque run, with fantastic PB potential, takes participants past some of York's splendid historic sites and along scenic country lanes, making it an attractive prospect for runners of all abilities.

Achieve a coveted personal best or simply be spurred on by great support and entertainment around the route - The Yorkshire Marathon has all the ingredients to make this an unforgettable experience. 

The marathon proved a hit from the word go with all 6,000+ places for the inaugural 2013 event snapped up in just 3 days. Athletes - professional and amateur - came from not only across the UK but from France, Spain, Ireland, the USA, Africa and the Caribbean. Capacity was increased to 7,000 in 2014 and the event was again a complete sell out, with all spots being taken within five hours.

The 2018 event, which takes place on Sunday 14th October at 9.30am is anticipated to be just as popular.

A huge army of volunteers also contribute to ensuring that the event is one that lives long in the memory. Their efforts help create an experience of which the whole of Yorkshire can be proud. 

Jane Tomlinson's Run For All; the organisation behind the popular Leeds, Hull, York, Nottingham and Burnley 10Ks and the Leeds Half Marathon and Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield. The well-regarded Run For All brand has already become synonymous with well-organised, quality sporting events throughout Yorkshire and the North of England and The Yorkshire Marathon is no different.
