I'd like a charity place


I already have my own place

Faster and flatter than London, Paris, Chicago or Berlin! Whether you’re aiming to smash your PB or just looking to cross the finish line, the Yorkshire Marathon is ideal for beginners and experienced athletes alike.

Your Yorkshire Marathon experience

Starting and finishing at the University of York, this fast and flat route allows you to enjoy the beautiful Yorkshire scenery whilst passing a few famous landmarks, including, Stamford Bridge and York Minster. Maybe you'll even get a high-five from the vicar! 

As you loop back towards the finish line, don't forget to "do the Y" as you cross the line. It's tradition after all!


The Yorkshire Marathon welcomes the use of wheelchairs, assisted or self-propelled. 

Guide or support runners are also welcomed, but they are required to have their own place in the event. 

All disabled participants are asked to submit a form with their registration ID to advise the Yorkshire Marathon of any specific requirements. 

It was an honour for us to be able to undertake this challenge for Scope. Knowing we were raising money for such an amazing cause really did keep us focused each step (and sprint!) of the way.

The difference you can make

By signing up to the Yorkshire Marathon with Scope, you'll be raising vital funds to help us end inequality for disabled people.

The pandemic has been difficult for everyone, but for disabled people its exacerbated existing barriers and exposed many new issues, leaving more and more disabled people feeling isolated and forgotten.

£65 could pay for one week of support for a disabled person to access our Starting Line service, a pre-employment training programme for disabled people at the start of their journey into work.

£450 could cover the cost of 50 phone calls to the Scope helpline, providing free, independent and impartial advice and support on issues that matter to disabled people and their families.

I can honestly say that I don’t think I could have coped had it not been for the Helpline. They have given me so much time and support through all my difficulties and battles.
