The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon
The marathon is a long-distance running event with an official distance of 26.2 miles usually run as a road race.
I have entered into the Yorkshire Marathon, this being the finale event, taking place on Saturday 8th October 2017.
The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon has quickly established itself as one of the highlights of the White Rose County’s sporting year. This popular and picturesque run, with fantastic PB potential, takes participants past some of York’s splendid historic sites and along scenic country lanes, making it an attractive prospect for runners of all abilities. Having never entered into a Marathon before and being one of my bucket list; I am very excited to be taking this challenge on.
Described by the Daily Mirror as the ‘Number 1 Alternative to London’.
