Overview

The Asda Foundation Yorkshire Marathon has proved a hit from day one, quickly establishing itself as a highlight of the White Rose County's sporting year. The since the inaugural event in 2013, the marathon peaks its numbers annually, as we aim to set thousands of runners off through the beautiful streets of York.

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.
