The Yorkshire Marathon is one of the UK’s most popular marathons, with places selling out in five consecutive years. Demand in 2018 is  equally high, so we are delighted that the BTF has two dedicated places in this iconic race which takes place on Sunday 14 October. To find out how you can take part in this event and help raise vital funds for the BTF at the same time, please email us on fundraising@btf-thyroid.org.

The Yorkshire Marathon very quickly established itself as one of the highlights of the North’s sporting year. This popular and picturesque run, with fantastic PB potential, takes participants past some of the beautiful city of York’s splendid historic sites and along scenic country lanes, making it an attractive prospect for runners of all abilities.

Described by the Daily Mirror as the Number 1 Alternative to the London Marathon and by the Guardian as a course on which to smash your PB, this race has written its own place in the UK running calendar. If you'd like to achieve a coveted PB or simply be spurred on by great support and entertainment around the route – the Yorkshire Marathon has all the ingredients to make this an unforgettable experience.

Please email us on fundraising@btf-thyroid.org to find out how you can take part in this event and help raise vital funds for the BTF at the same time. The registration is £25 and we ask that you raise a minimum sponsorship of £250.
