The Yorkshire Marathon remains one of the UK's most popular marathons, with places selling out in five consecutive years. Demand in 2018 is set to be equally high, so move fast or you may be disappointed.
The Yorkshire Marathon has quickly established itself as one of the highlights of the White Rose County's sporting year. This popular and picturesque run, with fantastic PB potential, takes participants past some of York's splendid historic sites and along scenic country lanes, making it an attractive prospect for runners of all abilities.
Described by the Daily Mirror as the Number 1 Alternative to London and by the Guardian as a course on which to smash your PB, this race has written its own place in the running calendar.
Achieve a coveted personal best or simply be spurred on by great support and entertainment around the route - the Yorkshire Marathon has all the ingredients to make this an unforgettable experience. To get a flavour of the marathon take a look at the video below!
The 2018 event, which takes place on Sunday 14th October, is proving to be just as popular.
And for those people who find the idea of taking on the full 26.2 miles too daunting, why not take a look at the Yorkshire 10 Mile or the Yorkshire Marathon Corporate Relay, where teams can share the distance!
A huge army of volunteers also contribute to ensuring that the event is one that lives long in the memory. Their efforts help create an experience of which the whole of Yorkshire can be proud.
