The Yorkshire Marathon, sponsored by Plusnet, is an annual marathon road running event held in York, UK in October, organised by Run For All Events.

The course starts the University of York and continues around the City Centre and past York Minster before heading out on the Vale of York and then returning to the finish at the university.

In the inaugural running of the event on 20 October 2013, over 3,800 runners finished the event.

Hour-long race highlights produced by Dream Team Television were broadcast two weeks later by Channel 4 and were subsequently shown by other sports channels including Sky Sports, BT Sport, British Eurosport and Premier Sports.
