Taking place on the same day as the full 26.2 mile Yorkshire Marathon, the Yorkshire 10 Mile shares many of the highlights of the Marathon with the added bonus of only having to run 10 miles – often referred to as ‘the perfect racing distance’.
Achieve a coveted personal best or simply be spurred on by great support and entertainment around the route - the Yorkshire 10 Mile has all the ingredients to make this an unforgettable experience.
The race will begin in the heart of York – arguably the most beautiful City in the UK - and pass various historic landmarks including the stunning York Minster and the impressive medieval City Walls.
The race will also travel out into the Yorkshire countryside where runners will be treated to scenic surroundings as they run down quaint country roads.
Set to be hugely popular, the 10 mile entrants will get to soak up the unique supportive atmosphere sparked by the City’s large and enthusiastic crowds – a growing feature year on year.
