The Yorkshire Marathon has everything you need to take away a little bit of that famous Yorkshire Spirit. Take in historic sites such as the York Minster and the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside as you take to this picturesque route. Listen out for the locals who come out to give you an “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! Yorkshire, Yorkshire, Yorkshire!
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.
