Yorkshire Marathon 2023

This increasingly popular race is becoming a firm fixture in the running calendar. An undulating course taking in God’s Own County, starting and finishing by the University of York campus.


  • 15 October 2023

The Route

Starting and finishing by the impressive University of York campus, get set for 26.2 miles of undulation that you’d come to expect from Yorkshire. In the first couple of miles, look for a glimpse of Yorkminster in the distance before heading out to Hazelbush Wood. Half-way sees you pass Stamford Bridge before heading to Dunnington before looping back for the final six miles which bring you back to the finish.

Already Have Your Own Place?

If you already have your own place and would like to Run 4 Cancer, we would be delighted!  We can fully support you with a training plan and a high performance Run 4 Cancer running vest… perfect for both training in and also for race day!  Just fill in the contact form below and we’ll get in touch right away! Thank you.

Apply For Your Free Place

We have a number of free and subsidised places available. All we ask is that you try to raise some sponsorship funds in support of Run 4 Cancer.  We set very low minimum sponsorship funds and fully understand that the cost of living crisis is impacting people’s ability to sponsor people.  To reserve your Run 4 Cancer place, get in touch with us using the form below.

We give families something to look forward to during the most difficult of times. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.
