Yorkshire Marathon 2020

Are you ready to tackle the 26.2 mile challenge?

Known as one of the friendliest marathons in the UK, the ASDA Foundation Yorkshire Marathon is a circular route combining both city and countryside, starting and finishing at York University. This highly popular event has sold out for the past 5 years, so make sure you secure your place pronto!


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

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


Farm Africa charity place - £40

We would love to have you join #TeamFarmAfrica! You will be helping the provision of expert skills and tools for African farmers to grow their businesses profitably, creating brighter futures for entire families. We ask you to pledge a minimum sponsorship of £400 and we are full of fundraising ideas to help you beat this!


Running with your own place

Already bought your own place but want to help Africa’s farming future become sustainable? Thank you! There’s no minimum pledge, just raise as much as you can!

Our events team will be with you all the way, sharing fundraising and training tips throughout your journey. Get in touch by emailing with proof of your purchased place and you are good to go!


Run for us in 2020 and support our vital work in eastern Africa, helping farming families turn their backs on poverty forever. When you become part of #TeamFarmAfrica, we'll support you every step of the way!
