Yorkshire Marathon Runners

The North's Top Ranking Race

Be part of a new era of age group marathon running at this year's Yorkshire Marathon...

Calling all club runners… the Yorkshire Marathon is now one of the Abbott World Marathon Major’s (AbbottWMM) race partners, which means that those taking part can now earn AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Rankings points.

The AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Rankings is a one-year qualifying period during which athletes in nine separate age groups can compete in marathons across the world to earn ranking points. The fourth edition of the qualifying period began on 1 January and runs through to the end of the year. At the end of the qualifying period, the top ranked runners in each age group will be invited to the AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Championships, which are due to take place in North America in 2023.

As a qualifying race, participants of the Yorkshire Marathon can now choose to earn points according to their age, time and gender. The spread of the AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group Qualifying Events creates a truly global series throughout the year, giving runners across the world the chance to be part of a new era of age group marathon running.

If you haven’t already, sign up to the 2022 Yorkshire Marathon for the opportunity to qualify.  And for more information about AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group Qualifying Events visit the website here
