Take on the North’s most popular Marathon in the sporting year.
Start into the historic city through the medieval gateway at Walmgate Bar and indulge in the surroundings of York Minster before heading off into the countryside. Witness the amazing community entertainment and crowds cheering you on. You then loop back round the countryside into the city centre to the finish line!
When you join the Dementia UK team you’ll receive all the support you need to make sure you are prepared for the day including:
A dedicated member of staff to support you all the way to the finish line and beyond!
A branded Dementia UK running vest
A fundraising pack to support your fundraising
A heap of adoration and gratitude!
Volunteer with us on the day!
Roles vary from making as much noise as possible at a cheer point to making hard-earned cups of tea for cyclists and runners post event. We’ll provide you with a Dementia UK t-shirt and all you need to bring on the day is your enthusiasm! Please fill in our short volunteer form and we will be in touch with more details.
The amount of support I received from Dementia UK coming up to the run was amazing. There was a 12 week training programme with a training night at Gateshead Stadium where you got to meet other people running for the charity. You didn’t know these people but you felt as though you were part of one big team. There was even support when I started doubting myself just before the run but Dementia UK encouraged me to believe in myself.
