What is the Yorkshire Marathon?

The Yorkshire Marathon first launched in 2013 and has quickly become of the country’s most popular running events, selling out every year.

With the course taking runners on a picturesque route through historic York and the beautiful countryside nearby, it’s no wonder! 

We have a limited number of places available for this event so encourage you to sign up as early as possible.

Why run with the British Red Cross?

The British Red Cross helps millions of people in the UK and around the world get the support they need if crisis strikes. We’re part of the global Red Cross and Red Crescent movement, and we believe in the power of kindness. Every step you take and every pound you raise will help fund this work.

As part of Team Red Cross you will be supported throughout your event preparation. Our Yorkshire Community Fundraising team will support you with your fundraising, answer any questions you have and of course – thank you for all of your hard work.

You’ll also receive a finisher’s goody bag, chip timing, a t-shirt and an exclusive event medal.

Already got a place?

If you already have your own place in the Yorkshire Running Events then you can still be part of Team Red Cross. You’ll receive the same support as all other team members but won’t have a fundraising target to reach – just raise as much as you can.
