Asda Foundation Yorkshire Marathon
A six-time sell-out, runners from the UK and beyond flock to York to take on the Asda Foundation Yorkshire Marathon each year – in 2018 over 7000 runners tackled this white rose favourite!
In 2019 the event takes place on October 20.
Starting at the University of York, runners flood the historic city of York with a sea of colour passing landmarks such as the ancient city walls, York Minster and Clifford’s Tower. Leaving the city, they then head down country lanes, take in breath-taking Yorkshire countryside and pass villages breaming with supportive spectators. All before returning to the university for an electric finish.
