Yorkshire Marathon Sign up to take on this popular and picturesque run, past some of York's splendid historic sites and along scenic country lanes. The marathon proved a hit from the word go with all 6,000+ places for the inaugural 2013 event snapped up in just three days. Athletes - professional and amateur - not only came from across the UK but from France, Spain, Ireland, the USA, Africa and the Caribbean. Capacity was increased to 7,000 in 2014 and the event was again a complete sell out, with all spots being taken within five hours.
