About this Event

The Yorkshire Marathon is full of that famous Yorkshire spirit. Take in sights such as the historic York Minster and the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside on this picturesque route and don’t forget to listen out for the locals who come out and say “EY UP!” to cheer you along.

The Yorkshire folk aren’t the only ones making the noise; an abundance of spectators from across the world will cheer you along the route straight back along University Road to finish in all your pride and glory. Remember: it’s tradition to “do the Y” as you cross the line!

Take home that hard-earned medal, knowing you’ve conquered those 26.2 miles. Whether you’re topping your time or just looking to cross the finish line, the Yorkshire Marathon is the perfect experience for amateurs and athletes alike.
