Big Yorkshire Saving!

The weekend's Yorkshire Marathon Festival was a great success, so take advantage of this fab discount and celebrate its 10 year anniversary in 2023...

The city of York came alive at the weekend as thousands of fun runners, charity fundraisers and club runners, came together to take part in the 2022 Yorkshire Marathon Festival; featuring the Yorkshire Marathon, Yorkshire 10 Mile and Yorkshire Marathon Relay.

Attracted by the opportunity to run through York’s historic and leafy streets, runners from across the UK and beyond came to take part in the hugely popular running festival, soaking up the atmosphere and legendary Yorkshire support all the way to the finish line on University Road.

Large and enthusiastic crowds created a tremendous atmosphere as they cheered participants of all ages and abilities along the picturesque and historic route and across the finish line. Runners at this year’s Yorkshire Marathon Festival were spurred on by various course music and charity cheering zones, to ensure a celebratory atmosphere throughout.

Mike Tomlinson, CEO of Run For All, said “It was a real pleasure to welcome the masses of runners who took part in today’s Yorkshire Marathon Festival. It was brilliant to see runners of all ages and abilities cross the finish line, each taking part for their individual reasons.

"The response to the Yorkshire Marathon Festival never ceases to amaze us, the sun was shining and the enthusiasm and support from everyone involved, from the participants themselves to the many spectators, sponsors, partners and volunteers, all ensured the day was a fantastic success.

"We already can’t wait for next year’s Yorkshire Marathon Festival as we celebrate our 10th Anniversary. We are incredibly proud to be hitting this milestone, and as always we invite runners of all ages and abilities to join us on the start line in 2023.”
