With a consistently flat and extremely fast course - The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon highlights the very best of York and the North Yorkshire countryside. You'll enter the city walls through Walmgate Bar and enjoy the bustling atmosphere along Parliament Street before passing through St. Helen's Square. Immerse yourself in impressive architecture such as The Mansion House and the famous Betty's tea rooms before catching your first glimpse of the imposing York Minster. You'll leave the city walls via the ornate Monk Bar and can speed on through mile upon mile of flat landscape around the Vale of York and the pretty villages and towns of North and the East Riding of Yorkshire.
