Take on the increasingly popular Yorkshire 10 mile sharing many of the marathon highlights with the added bonus of running ‘the perfect racing distance’.
Starting in the heart of York passing various historic landmarks including the stunning York Minster and the medieval City walls and going out into the Yorkshire countryside to take in the scenic surroundings of the quaint (but very well supported) country roads.

An amazing experience at race weekend – with a cheer point and a post-race reception where we can celebrate your achievement with you!
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.
