ASDA Foundation Yorkshire Festival

Whether you are looking for a 10 mile or 26.2 mile challenge, sign up for a charity place with Farm Arica at the Yorkshire Festival on Sunday 16 October. 

Beginning at University of York’s Heslington Campus, both runs are as picturesque as each other. Charity runners will run past the beautiful city of York's gorgeous historic sites and fly down seemingly untouched country lanes.  Known as one of the friendliest marathons in the UK, this highly popular event has sold out for the past 5 years, so make sure you secure your place pronto! 

Join #TeamFarmAfrica to kickstart your fitness whilst supporting our vital work to drive prosperity across eastern Africa from the ground up.

Count me in! How do I apply for a place?

There are two ways you can grab your place...

We would love for you to join #TeamFarmAfrica! We ask you to pledge a minimum sponsorship of £400 and we are full of fundraising ideas to help you beat this!
