Run For All is Not for Profit. An entry to a Run For All event helps support great causes, part of the legacy of late amateur athlete and fundraiser Jane Tomlinson CBE. From Fun Run to Marathon, we welcome all ages and abilities - we really are For All. Run For All is part of the lasting legacy of the late amateur athlete and fundraiser Jane Tomlinson CBE. Jane, from Leeds, made headlines around the world by taking part in a series of incredible endurance events - despite being diagnosed with an incurable cancer. The mum-of-three defied her devastating diagnosis to complete challenge after challenge – from marathons and triathlons to ironman contests and cross-Europe cycle rides. Her final – and toughest – endeavour was a 4,200-mile bike ride across the breadth of America in 2006. It was a gruelling challenge that even an athlete in the peak of fitness would find daunting, let alone someone fighting cancer. As ever, though, Jane battled on to somehow realise her goal. Every year tens of thousands of people take part in our popular events – running for charity, for a personal challenge or just for fun.

To the organisers; if you are closing roads, please ensure ALL signs and marshalls know to direct traffic away from those closed roads. I travelled at 09.30 this morning down Murton Way onto Moor lane, then Sandy lane onto Holtby Lane, my usual route to Stockton Lane. Not one sign of a road closure, not one person stopping me and turning me back, until Stockton Lane, when i was turned round by a very ill mannered police officer, who never went to the school of charm or politeness. I then had to retrace my drive back to Osbaldwick Link Road and onto the A64 to get to work. The biggest issue was not the lack of signs or marshal awareness, but the motorcycle police officer, who spoke to me with more venom in his voice than you could imagine. If this is the way police people now speak to the general public, then i am not surprised they are losing respect from the public. If you were that police motorcyclist, i'm sorry you got out of the bed the wrong way and had to work, but don't take it out on innocent drivers who are trying to get to work. Rant over. … read more

I loved it. Having done both London and Brighton marathons, it was really nice to do a marathon without all the hullaballoo of having to register the day before, big queues to collect your number and having to get to the start time two hours in advance to wait in the right pen etc. Just pin on a number which they send in the post, put on your trainers and walk up to the line.The organisation was top class, the course is beautiful (you run past York Minster and then out into the countryside) and the support on route was great - as a Londoner, running through villages while spectators shouted 'Well done, lad!' in a Yorkshire accent was something I don't get every week. Added to that a high five from the Archbishop John Sentamu was surely worth an extra couple of seconds per kilometre.The course would best be described as undulating - there are ups and downs, but no really big hills so it is pretty fast. A couple of 1km grinds, but only up 2% slopes, the only bad hill is sadly in the last kilometre and made me walk!

Ive taken part every year so know what to expect. Get to the Uni early is my advice, its a huge site and confusing if you dont know it. I would love to know how big the group is who have completed all five marathons to date. London make a bit of a feature of it now albeit I appreciate there have been a lot more!

Instructions in other languages for non uk participants, I got to the half marathon point and had someone speaking broken English to me asking where the 10mile finish was, so they had obviously not realised the different start times. Definitely pack your own gels, I thought the gel station could of been slightly earlier or maybe even had 2, I know its hard when its sponsor based.

This is really great event which runs as smooth as an event like this can with the organisers getting everything right. The course is not the most exciting and there long stretches with little no support which adds to the mental problems that a race this long can throw up.

Love it, done it 4 years in a row and doing it again.Watch out for the hill around 5 miles and make sure you save some energy for miles 18-22, not particularly hard but a slight incline that can knock you off your stride.

Set off a little too fast this year (who doesn't). It's easy to do in this course as there's a nice downhill to start you off with. Best part has to be running past York Minster a few miles in. Unbelievable atmosphere, especially with the bells ringing. Get those earphones out and enjoy it! Only part that is a slog is the long open stretches between mile 14 and 20. Oh, and don't forgot those annoying twisting lanes after mile 22, where you don't get any good sighters of landmarks to work towards. But overall a brilliant marathon. Fantastic crowds, great route, brilliant organisation. Will be doing it again next year for the third time.

Loved the course. Nice to run through the city and past the Minster. Would be great to do it in reverse, so you're through the city at the end, but realise logistically that would be a nightmare.

Overall, a good and well organised event, and a PB for me. Things to know: Leave plenty of time to get from the centre of York, as the queues for the special bus can be long, and from the village to the start pen is a fair way with some bottlenecks, like some others I only just made the start. Course is a mixed bag: First half has the city then nice country lanes, second half mostly a bit of a grind out and back along an A road with long gradual inclines. Great support from people in the villages, though long stretches can feel quite quiet and remote! I liked the availability of isotonic drinks and gels as well as water - possible to do this one without having to bring your own gels/energy drinks with you. Event was filmed, and it was nice to see myself crossing the line in the highlights on telly, even if I looked slightly the worse for wear!

It actually took a while to get to the start from the toilets/village. I only just about made the start and started further back than I intended. Its not a problem with the organisation its just me not allowing enough time.I managed a PB even though I suffered with stomach cramps for the first 10 miles.Definitely one to do.

York was my first marathon and must say I thoroughly enjoyed the whole race! Great course with a mixture of city and countryside. Support was good in places with only a few lonely spots. I would run York again however this year I have 3 more marathons to run!

The isotonic drinks were cheap and way too strong and the water that was provided had no lids on, which made it hard to consume whilst running!

Was a well organised event - from park & ride to completion. Had no issues, the course Ive ran before so knew it well. Weather updates & guide of what to wear could be useful for new runners. Ive had text updates/links at other events. I did enjoy the fact my friends could use the bus to get back into the city centre - live tracker worked well for them getting back to the finish

The York marathon was a great event - really nice course mostly through rolling countryside. Mostly flat course so good to try and post a good time :-) The dog leg loop at about 2/3rd's was bit draggy but getting a high 5 from the Archbishop of York (who was in full robes) raised the spirits. I did a 4.02 time which is a PB for me, but need to train hard to find the 2 mins!!

This was my 4th marathon so I was pretty well prepared but it was nice that we got a lot of information prior to raceday. This covered all sorts from bag drop to facilities that were available on the day. The weekly e mail updates were great for keeping you abreast with all things YM and acted as an incentive to my Training.

This was my first marathon and I enjoyed every minute of it (well the last 4 Miles were a bit rough). I think the only thing I personally will be doing differently is to bring a couple of changes in case of changeable weather. I was also lacking in something warm to put on after the race!
