Marathon. Relays. Art. Music. The Cultured Run


The UK City of Culture brings you more than just a marathon. The Hull Marathon & Relays powered by Eon Visual Media & Brainworks, gives runners a cultural experience around the city, neighbouring Hessle and the iconic Humber Bridge.

Starting in West Park, The Cultured Run passes landmarks including Queen Victoria Square – home to the Ferens Art Gallery and Maritime Museum; The Deep, Spurn Lightship and the Marina, the working Albert Dock, four parks and the Humber Bridge, interspersed with live music and art installations along the route, this year linked to Hull maritime heritage.

As runners come into Costello Athletics Stadium in mile 24, they’ll not only be greeted by Fitmums & Friends’ Race Angels, but they’ll be able to have a go at the KCOM Ultrafast 100m on the track! We believe this unique feature enables runners to have a go at testing themselves mentally and physically.

With a stadium finish, distances to suit everyone, great support along the route, medals for all runners, T-shirt and goody bag - what are you waiting for?

And don’t forget the Fun Run!

Prizes for the first five finishers: 1st and 2nd V40 to V80 (male and female) & first two teams.
