Flatter & faster than London, Paris, Chicago or Berlin. Enjoy a scenic route past Yorkshire's splendid historic sites.
Tackle one of the UK's flattest and most popular marathons!
The Yorkshire Marathon is one of the UK’s most popular marathons, taking in the splendour of historic York and surrounding countryside.
With good ol' Yorkshire support from the locals and an eye-catching medal at the finish, this event carries a special race day atmosphere for all abilities to enjoy.
The Yorkshire Marathon route showcases the best of the City of York and its surrounding countryside.
The Yorkshire Marathon is a fantastic event for runners of all abilities. If you're looking for a new PB, the course is flatter & faster than London, Paris, Chicago or Berlin. If you're new to the marathon scene, where better to start than in God's Own Country?
Founded by the ancient Romans, York boasts a huge 13th-century Gothic cathedral and has more miles of intact wall than any other city in England. The marathon also heads out to Stamford Bridge, home of the famous 1066 Viking battle.
York also offers international hotel chains as well as designer boutique hotels and independent hostels. There's something for every budget.
The autumnal race begins at 09:30am - make sure you take in the seasonal colours as you run, and enjoy the cool post-summer breeze helping you round the course.
Runners complete the Yorkshire Marathon for many different reasons. Challenge for a PB, tackle your first marathon or run to support a charity close to your heart.
“Very well organised race. Running past the minster, through York city centre and out in the Yorkshire countryside – what’s not to like.” - Chris Barnes (reviewed on Racecheck)
“It’s a great route with fantastic crowds.” - Steve Irving (reviewed on Racecheck)
You can either enter the event with a general entry, or secure a guaranteed charity place. The Yorkshire Marathon sells out every year, so don't delay.
Securing a charity place means you'll meet like-minded charity-runners before the event and on race-day itself (great if you're running solo) plus you'll be raising important funds for a good cause.
