About
The Yorkshire Marathon is one of the UK’s most popular marathons. Previous elites to take on the 26.2-mile course include Paralympic gold medalist Hannah Cockcroft and Kenyan born Edwin Korir who competed for U.S.A. at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Korir remains the course record holder with a time of 2 hours 13 minutes and 31 seconds. “A Run For All event so it’s well organised and what you would expect from an RFA event.” “Very well organised race. Running past the minster, through York city centre and out in the Yorkshire countryside – what’s not to like.”
