The marathon proved a hit from the word go with all 6,000+ places for the inaugural 2013 event snapped up in just 3 days. Athletes - professional and amateur - came from not only across the UK but from France, Spain, Ireland, the USA, Africa and the Caribbean. Capacity was increased to 7,000 in 2014 and the event was again a complete sell out, with all spots being taken within five hours.
The 2018 event, which takes place on Sunday 14th October at 9.30am is just as popular.
And for those people who find the idea of taking on the full 26.2 miles too daunting, the inclusion of the Yorkshire Marathon Corporate Relay in the 'running schedule' offers the chance for teams to get involved, too. Groups of friends or colleagues can complete the course in relay form - each sharing a section of the 26.2 mile course while soaking up the unique atmosphere of a marathon race day.
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.
The marathon is staged by Marathon Yorkshire Ltd, a sister company to Jane Tomlinson's Run For All; the organisation behind the popular Leeds, Hull, York, Nottingham and Burnley 10Ks and the Leeds Half Marathon and Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield. The well-regarded Run For All brand has already become synonymous with well-organised, quality sporting events throughout Yorkshire and the North of England and The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon is no different.
