Whether it's running past the historic York Minster, hi-fiving the vicar and just taking in the beautiful Yorkshire scenery there is guaranteed to be a memorable moment at the Yorkshire Marathon. Great race, fantastically well organised and marshalled, fabulous friendly support and a lovely piece of bling. Put Yorkshire on your to do list! Nigel M
Beautiful run through the middle of the city and then out into the countryside. Beware the gradual, but long, incline at mile 17/18. Phil K
This is a great first marathon, or PB course. It is well organised with busses to take supporters to points of the course where their encouragement helps keep your spirits up. It has a great warm up at the start and the highlight is the Vicar, hi fiving runners in one of the villages. Helena C
My first marathon. The route itself is fairly flat with a little bit of a climb at the end before my favourite fast finish down to the finish line. Good quality big medal, good event village with food. Ray J
Great day Yorkshire Marathon. This was a really well organised event. Lots of pre-race emails. Race bib arrived through the post with a shiny race booklet. You don't get that often these days. Leeds C
I did the York Marathon as my first marathon, lovely city and plenty of time spent around the country side. I thought it was pretty flat and can see why plenty are saying its PB material. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole event. Michael T
