Back by popular demand, the Plusnet Yorkshire 10 Mile will return to the ancient and beautiful city of York on Sunday 8th October.

The 10 Mile event – a classic racing distance – returns as part of the Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon Festival, which also includes a full marathon and a team relay.

Entries open at 9am on Wednesday 8th February – to enter go to

It is the 5th year the Marathon Festival has come to the White Rose County, bringing thousands of runners from across the region, the UK and overseas.

Starting and finishing at the University of York, the Plusnet Yorkshire 10 Mile takes in a section of the attractive 26.2 mile marathon course.

Set to be hugely-popular once more, the 10 mile entrants will get to soak up the unique atmosphere and enjoy the support of the large and enthusiastic crowds that have become such a feature of the marathon since its launch in 2013.

Lynne Preston, Event Manager of the Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon Festival, said: “The 10 mile event is a great addition to the already popular Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon. There is always a fantastic atmosphere on marathon race day and the 10 mile run gives even more people the opportunity to be involved.”yorks
