Flatter & faster than London, Paris, Chicago or Berlin. Enjoy a scenic route past Yorkshire's splendid historic sites.
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 get your own place. You'll have to act fast though, as places sell out quickly each year.
The best way to secure your entry is with a charity place - your spot on the start line will be guaranteed, you'll be teamed up with like-minded runners and you'll be raising important funds for a good cause.
Why not check out the Yorkshire 10 Mile taking place the same day - same highlights as the marathon but only 10 miles.
Or get your marathon medal with 5 friends or colleagues at the Yorkshire Marathon Relay.

Funding medical research projects to secure a future without prostate cancer.
The mission of PCRC is to develop new therapy for men with advanced prostate cancer. The immediate goal is to increase survival and our vision is a cure for the disease.
The Prostate Cancer Research Centre is the only charity solely focused on funding world class scientists developing new treatments for advanced prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men. Over 11,000 men die every year in the UK and the number increases every year.
Advanced prostate cancer is treated with hormone therapy, developed in the 1940s. Hormone therapy is still the primary and most effective treatment for advanced prostate cancer. Consequently, survival rates have improved little over the last 70 years. New and more effective therapy is urgently needed.
We are dedicated to improving the survival of the next generation of men and better treatment can only come through research.

Offering specialist one-to-one support and expert advice for families living with dementia through our world-class Admiral Nurses.
Our renowned Admiral Nurses work hand in hand with families, helping them cope with the fear, uncertainty and difficult everyday reality of dementia. They were named by the family of Joseph Levy CBE BEM, who founded the charity. Joseph had vascular dementia and was known affectionately as “Admiral Joe” because of his love of sailing.
Living with dementia can be an incredibly hard and lonely experience for both the person with dementia and their loved ones. We provide the compassionate, expert support families need every step of the way - helping everyone in that family to live more positively with dementia in the present; and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence.
We believe passionately that everyone who needs the support of an Admiral Nurse should get one - that’s why we’re working hard to increase the number of nurses across the UK.
