The Yorkshire Marathon Course
The Yorkshire Marathon prides itself on being one of the UK’s most popular marathons and sells out every year. The course will see participants make their way across beautiful York and the countryside surrounding it. Iconic sights to be found include the York Minster, the lovely village of Stockton, Buttercrambe Moor Wood and the University of York.
The course will see a small amount of elevation in parts, but no more than 20 metres on any one incline. This slight elevation makes it perfect for trying for that new Personal best.
The Marathon will also see a few regular sponsors return, including the ASDA Foundation, Arla Protein and Aftershoks. A selection of other Sponsors will also have a presence too, though. These include the University of York, City of York Council, Radio York and Erdinger.
The race begins at 9:25 with the wheelchair participants moving first, followed by all other participants at 9:30. For those looking to leave bags in a secure place, storage is available from 7 am onwards. A mass warm-up will then precede the race, in which all participants are invited to partake. Upon completion, participants will receive their chip timing, finisher’s goody bag, tech t-shirt, and one of our special-made Bespoke Medals.
Crowds will also be able to watch the Yorkshire 10 Mile take place. Starting at 10 15 am, the route leads runners around York and the local villages, before ending at the University of Yorkshire. Participants in the Yorkshire 10 Mile will also receive chip timing, a finisher’s goody bag, tech t-shirt and a Bespoke Medal.
Best of luck to everyone who takes part in both the Marathon and 10 Mile, and we hope you enjoy your medals!
