Yorkshire Day: upcoming events

Yorkshire Day, or 1st August as the rest of the country calls it, has been celebrated fondly in the UK’s largest county for over 40 years now. We normally reflect on the county’s rich history by indulging in a hefty amount of traditional Yorkshire food and letting off some fireworks to show our local pride.

When it comes to breeding world-class athletes, Yorkshire sure knows how to churn them out, with Jessica Ennis-Hill, the Brownlees and Nicola Adams all bringing home Olympic gold medals, just to name a few. They all had to start somewhere – that’s why we’ve put together this guide to Yorkshire’s best upcoming events, suitable for complete beginners and seasoned athletes alike.
