The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon – Sunday 12th October

The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon has quickly established itself as one of the highlights of the White Rose County’s sporting year.

This popular and picturesque run – flatter and faster than London, Paris, Chicago and Berlin – 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.

It 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.

The marathon is staged by Marathon Yorkshire Ltd, a sister company to Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All; the organisation behind the popular Leeds, Hull, York and Pennine-Lancashire 10Ks and the Leeds Half Marathon. 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 Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon is no different.
