Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon

Yorkshire MarathonRace for places in 2017 Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon now on!

Now firmly established as one of the North’s top races and described by the Daily Mirror as the “number 1 alternative to London,” it’s hardly surprising that places in the Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon are always massively over-subscribed.

The race has sold out early every year since its launch in 2013 and if you want to bag a place in next year’s sought-after event, you need to move quickly.   

Places for the 5th anniversary marathon on Sunday 8 October 2017 are now open.

With a largely flat and fast course taking in the historic heart of York, country lanes and attractive villages, it is a run that appeals to all, from the seasoned veteran to the marathon novice.
 
Large and enthusiastic crowds offering great support are another feature of the event which has raised millions for charity.
